IMG Bootcamp

The weekend bootcamp for first year students is usually held in the second half of October. The aim of the event is to allow new PhD students at IMG to get to know each other and get familiar with the organization of working life at our institute.

In addition to several lectures by IMG staff, the weekend includes a varied program: socialization games, trips around the area (in recent years we have been going to the Muhu chalet in the Jizera Mountains) and other activities.
