In addition to reporting on the current status of the projects of the SFB TRR 102 "Polymers under Constrained Conditions" after almost 12 years of research, the retreat will feature presentations by external guests from academia and beyond.
Furthermore, the meeting will serve to discuss the content of the formal final report for the DFG.
