SYSCID kicks off with a successful three day meeting in Kiel

Following the proverb “April showers bring May flowers” the SYSCID consortium held a productive first project meeting , which despite a mixture of wind, rain, sun and even snow (!) allows for a highly optimistic outlook towards the first year of collaborative work.

The group was invited by the SYSCID coordinator Philip Rosenstiel to the Center for Molecular Biosciences (ZMB) in Kiel, which was a perfect venue located on the university campus next to the Kiel Botanic Garden.

The meeting schedule included a combination of presentations and outbreak sessions, in which key tasks were discussed and the first action points could be fixed. The program was rounded off by a boat trip along the Kiel Fjord and a reception in the Zoological museum, giving the partners the opportunity to get to know each other and to explore Kiel.

After two and a half days of exchange and fruitful discussions, the consortium partners headed back taking home encouraging ideas and many happy memories.
