We are back!

All the participants including the committee and the supervisors are back. That means all participants go back to studying and the supervisors to their daily work. However, the study tour is formally not over yet. The participants need to finish their microstudy and hand in two other reports. After that we will have a symposium to finalize the study tour. We will keep you posted about that latter part!

The studytour has ended and that means a 3-week trip across the US has been completed. We thank all the participants and supervisors for their enthusiasm on this trip and all other persons who have helped us to make this wonderful journey possible!

We wish all participants a great time on their vacations across the US. Some are going to Mexico, others stay in California. Have fun!

Cultural excursions

honey_island_tourDuring the study tour we will visit spectacular excursions in New York, New Orleans and San Francisco. Our schedule is quite full, but luckily we have a free afternoon on Wednesday the 12th of October.  During this spare time, we will hit the water and make an awesome kayak tour through the swamps of Honey Island in the New Orleans area. Covered with cypress groves, abandoned houseboats and exotic wildlife it’s going to be a wonderful experience.

Summer vacation

summer-1403071_960_720The summer holiday has started. Sadly (or luckily), not for us, because we still have things to do before we can take off to New York. During the upcoming weeks we will be less available than usual. If we don’t answer the phone, leave a message or send us an e-mail.

To our participants and supervisors: Enjoy your holidays!!
