IZN Retreat 2021: Competitions

To add something special to this year's IZN Retreat we are very happy to introduce the first

IZN Art Competition

Each group or individual participant can bring one piece of art - it doesn't matter if it is a collage, sculpture, photograph, painting or drawing.... The only requirement: it must be connected to IZN and/or Neuroscience.

The artworks will be on display in Schöntal and every participant can cast one vote for his or her favorite piece of art. On the last day of the retreat the winners will be picked and their works will be put onto the home page of the IZN website. There will also be a prize!

If you have questions about the 'IZN Art Competition', please contact Antje König (sekretariat@nbio.uni-heidelberg.de).
