This year’s DINI Retreat led us to Burghausen, home of the world’s longest castle. There we had a very productive time full of “Girl Power”. We discussed strategies for strengthening DINI and enhancing the network among graduate students. Stay tuned for new upcoming events this year in a new format and find VISIBLE changes in the DINI appearance. In the late afternoon some of the brave girls jumped in the 16°C cold water of Lake Wöhr, just to warm up with some beers in the walkable surrealistic dream of the bar “Knoxoleum”. Thank you girls for a very pleasant weekend with lots of ice cream and thank you HELENA for support!
