The purpose of the meeting is (i) to present and discuss on-going research projects at BiRC, (ii) to discuss how to make the "daily life" at BiRC even better, and last, but not least, (iii) to have a good time in the beautiful "Mols Mountains".


The meeting takes place at Mols Laboratoriet. Minibus transportation will be arranged to and from Mols Laboratoriet - BiRC will only refund transportation in your own car if the busses are full. BiRC also covers food and lodging, but if you want exotic drinks or a good red wine for the dinner Monday night, you should bring it yourself.

Anybody working at BiRC can participate. Please inform Ellen Noer, elno [at] birc.au.dk, before July 3rd, 2011, if you will attend the meeting.
