During the time of the Summer School, lectures for the students are accompanied by a series of engaging seminars for the junior and senior members of the faculty as well as for the fellow colleagues from the Summer School. Every summer, current research is presented and discussed involving Ph.D. students and members of the faculty. The research events are productive meetings, strengthening the scientific network and exchanging new ideas.
