Inspired by the success of the first QMA retreat, the upcoming retreat is organized exclusively for young scientists at the PhD and Postdoc level from ct.qmat to share their research results through scientific presentations and discussions. These presentations will aim to provide an excellent introduction to various research activities of the cluster and  empower the participants to build collaborations within the cluster. Additionally, the retreat will feature various fun activities which provide plenty of opportunities to network and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere.
