We are pleased to announce that our 1st Annual Sensing Loops Retreat from March 19th until the 21st, 2024 in Potsdam was a full success. We spent 3 intense days together at the beautiful island of Hermannswerder in Potsdam, enjoying insightful presentations, discussing our science, engage in lively discussion and connecting with colleagues from our consortium.

Huge thanks to all individuals who made this inaugural LOOPs retreat an unforgettable experience.


Following the retreat, the majority of the LOOPs PhD students and postdocs, alongside Julio Hechavarria (Loops PI) and our esteemed guest,  Mototaka Suzuki (from University of Amsterdam), continued their stay. They engaged in insighful discussions on career guidance and efficiency skills, presented their own projects and participated in workshops focusing on soft skills. It was a great opportunity to further connect among early-stage scientists.
