1st International Spring School on Resilience Research

May 21-25, 2018, Seeon Abbey, close to Munich, Germany

The aim of this spring school is to educate young scientists (PhD students, postdocs) about novel theoretical and methodological developments in resilience research. The spring school will provide participants with first-hand knowledge about the paradigms suitable for examining resilience, as well as their potential caveats and pitfalls. It addresses researchers in both the animal and human fields. The program (PDF for download) includes short lectures, daily practical sessions in small groups and a poster session.

The spring school is supported by Deutsches Resilienz Zentrum (DRZ), DFG Collaborative Research Center CRC1193 "Neurobiology of Resilience", International Resilience Alliance, and the EU Horizon 2020 project DynaMORE.
