Lab retreat with Svend Kjaer – UK, October 2021
This year’s lab retreat was in the UK’s peak district with characteristically wet English weather but beautiful walk and a quaint pub in the local village. Everybody gave a big picture talk with great discussions. Also, a tough quiz courtesy of Ines plus fun and games in the evening. Fantastic organisation by Ines, Ana and Sophie.

The Vincent/Leopold joint lab retreat – France, March 2015
A selection of pictures from a fantastic week in the south of France with our friends from the Leopold lab. Most of the retreat was spent on the island of Île Sainte-Marguerite off the coast of Cannes. There was beautiful scenery, a kayak excursion in the sun and plenty of rewarding discussions. We look forward to repaying the favour with a UK retreat in the future!
