Each year the Postdoc Committee organizes an annual retreat.  Postdocs from the five EMBL sites get together to exchange ideas, network and form new collaborations. 

A highlight of the event is the external speakers who are chosen by the postdoc community based upon their scientific excellence.

The 2011 Postdoc Retreat took place from 2-4 November in Strasbourg, France.

The 2010 Postdoc Retreat took place from 8-10 November, Lübeck, Germany.

The 2009 Postdoc Retreat took place from 4-6 November in Stresa, Italy.
