Event: 18 Haindorf Seminar

 


In a long tradition of seminars, the 18. Haindorf seminar, hosted by the IRTG 1792, took place from January 22 until January 26, 2019. In the former Franciscan Monastery in the village of Hejnice (Haindorf) our researchers and guests convened to share and discuss their ongoing research and present their research findings. 

 

Besides the insightful sessions there was enough time for social activity. Participants used the offers of the region such as skiing, hiking and joyful gatherings in the evenings to get to know each other and create a very collegial and friendly atmosphere. The former monastery provided not only adequate rooms for the sessions, the guests and evening activities but also czech food and a guided tour to the associated church and its crypts.

 

We want to express our sincere thanks to CiS systems s.r.o. for showing us one of their production locations in the Czech Republic.

 

We look back at a successful Haindorf seminar and look forward to come back to this beautiful place next year again.


There is more information about the participants as well as the talks on the seminar’s website.
