HEiKA Retreat

  • HEiKAexplore - Highlights and outlooks of 2 funded initiatives

  • Invited Speaker: "Stem cell-material interactions: How materials science helps to unlock potential stem cell applications", Prof. Dr. Cornelia Lee-Thedieck, Leibniz University Hannover

  • Current information on HEiKA

  • Walk together to the HEiKA SUMMER PARTY at the Fasanenschlösschen


In our HEiKA retreat at the Hochspannungstechnik-Hörsaal (HSI, Geb. 30.35), KIT, Campus Süd, Engesserstr. 11, 76131 Karlsruhe we will get an insight and outlook of the 2 funded initiatives in HEiKAexplore:

  • "Autonomous driving in law, technology and society – from vision to realization" (Albert Albers)
  • "Robots and Sensors for disease diagnostics & therapy" (Frank Breitling)

Afterwards we are very happy to have a talk of one of our HEiKA- and KIT-alumna, Prof. Dr. Cornelia Lee-Thedieck, who is now at the Leibniz University Hannover, Head of Institute of Cell Biology and Biophysics.
We are looking forward to her talk about:
"Stem cell-material interactions: How materials science helps to unlock potential stem cell applications".

After the HEiKA retreat, we will walk together to the Fasanenschlösschen (5-minute-walk) to our Summer Party.
In the courtyard of the Fasanenschlösschen you may network with colleagues and plan your next activities in a pleasant atmosphere with snacks from the grill and cool summer drinks...
