The Young Researcher Vision Camp 2013

12. July 2013

The Young Researcher Vision Camp 2013 took place at Castle Wildenstein from June 21st - June 23rd and had an overwhelming resonance within the community.

More than 120 doctoral students and young postdocs from 13 countries (Switzerland, Spain, The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Ukraine, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Czech republic, Greece, Ireland and Belgium) took over the nearly 1000 years old masonry and made it for two and a half days to the interdisciplinary hub of European Vision Research and Ophthalmology. What a great experience!

Especially the professional organization by the scientific committee (Dr. Norbert Kinkl, Dr. Francois Paquet-Durand, Dr. Timm Schubert and Dr. Thomas Wheeler-Schilling) and the organization committee (Dr. Sigrid Diether and Mr. Philipp Hunger) from the Institute for Ophthalmic Research was highly appreciated. Beyond the core of the Vision Camp, the excellent scientific sessions, further highlights were the intense dialogue between academia and industry, thanks to the great enthusiasm by our supporters Carl Zeiss, Charles River and Rodenstock and the production of a documentary movie by Grasshoppers-Film in Tuebingen.
