During the 4-day meeting, you will work in groups on challenges related to the societal impact of your own research and, in close collaboration with a journalist, you will work on the public outreach of your  research.

You will get insight into current trends within the field of cardiovascular research as well as create a stronger network with fellow peers. At a panel debate with experienced reviewers, you will learn about the funding mechanisms behind the scenes. The meeting offers a programme with a mixture of scientific lectures, inspirational talks, group work as well as oral presentations of the participants’ own research. Networking activities include hands-on physiological experiments, a sauna raft on a nearby lake, and a time slot allocated for skiing.
