On Thursday 28.07.2022 the words of the students for the final presentations of the International Summer School in Nové Hrady resonated through the walls of the castle in Nové Hrady. It is already the standard end of the summer school, which was attended by 9 students from seven countries this year. The difference was that this was already the twentieth year of summer schools that are organized in Nové Hrady. In those twenty years, more than 700 students went through the summer school. You can read the confessions of students and people involved in the organization in the publication created for the 20th anniversary.
Personally, I think that the goal of the summer school was achieved. The students successfully participated in solving the scientific projects of both laboratories and we will use their results in our further research. An accompanying program was also prepared for the students (a trip on scooters, a barbecue, lectures, a visit by students from Vodňany). Several students expressed interest in further collaboration and doctoral studies. Photos can be viewed here and a reportage by the "Jihočeská televize" can be viewed here.
The summer school was supported from the FROV JU budget and from the budget for the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice.
