Group Retreats


Every 8-10 months our group has a one-day retreat to discuss our research progress and to plan strategies for the following year. Econiche House in the Gatineau Park, about 25 minutes from the University of Ottawa, has been our place of choice, providing a relaxed atmosphere. In a typical retreat we have a short meeting with the whole group, followed by thematic small group discussions led by experienced postdoctoral fellows and research associates. At the end of the day each group reports and suggests goals for the following year.
