From 3-5 July2023, the CeMM Recess 2023 took place in Altlengbach (Austria). This year, the overarching theme was to foster collaborations between CeMM and Adjunct Groups by presenting “What’s in my fridge”. The objective was to share methods, skills, knowledge, and data with colleagues to generate new ideas and promising projects.

Our guest speakers and CeMM Alumni members Berend Snijder, Professor at the ETH Zurich, and Ariel Bensimon, CEO of Solgate, delivered inspiring talks on their scientific achievements, inventions, and career paths. Additionally, some CeMM members have introduced new tech transfer ideas to the audience and start-up panel members.

We thank the 60 participants from the different CeMM groups, including Faculty and Team Leaders, the CeMM TA, PhD Student and PostDoc Representatives, and, of course, the organizers of this year’s recess, Laura de Rooij, Davide Seruggia, and the CeMM Directors. It was an interesting meeting and a joyful team-building event. Now, the new ideas and further discussions will be shared with the entire CeMM community.
