Joint Retreat 2020


University Centre Telč

Unfortunatelly, the Joint Retreat had to be cancelled for this year due to the ongoing restrictions regarding the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic. The CEITEC PhD Committee as the organizing body would like to sincerely apologize to anybody who was interested in this event and who might be affected by the change of plans. A special apology goes to the potential sponsors who already promised the sponsoring - thank you for your interest in our event, we will be more than happy to provide a space for the propagation of your companies next year.

We already started planning the Joint Retreat 2021 - hopefully the organizing institutions will stay the same. Please stay tuned. We will keep you informed about what is happening with the Retreat.
