It has been our pleasure to invite the fellows of the programme to join the First Annual Meeting, which took place from 29th October 2013 until 1st November 2013 at the Rigi Kulm Hotel at the top of Mount Rigi (near Lucerne).


The meeting commenced with a warm welcome on the evening of Monday, 28 October, followed by the first workshop on the morning of Tuesday, 29 October.

During the First Annual Meeting PLANT FELLOWS offered postdoctoral training in two workshops: "Career Management for Postdoctoral Fellows" and "Training in Advanced Funding Strategies".

Moreover the fellows of the programme had the opportunity to present in oral presentations and with poster talks their research projects and had additionally the chance of attracting the PLANT FELLOWS AWARD for the best scientific presentation and the best poster talk.

The detailed agenda for the First Annual Meeting is available here.

The programme was framed with relaxing networking opportunities in the evening with beer, wine and cheese.


We look forward to welcoming again to Mount Rigi in 2014 where the fellows will have the opportunity to enjoy the interaction with colleagues, the stimulation of exciting research and training discussions and the breathtaking view over Lake Lucerne and the Swiss Alps.
