The Joint Retreat 2020 is the 5th event in the series of Retreats organized by Student committee of CEITEC (Central European Institute of Technology) Brno. This year, CEITEC has been joined by IOCB Prague and TU Vienna (Vienna University of Technology) in the organization of the event. 

The three previous events took place in Valtice in 2015 , in Telč (2017 and 2018) and in Hotel Luna Kouty in 2019. The Joint Retreat 2020 is returning to a somewhat traditional venue - the University Centre in the picturesque town of Telč.
