Think different seminar

Think Different "Think different" is the former slogan of a famous California-based computer manufacturer. We adopted the motto for an intermittent series of events that aim to broaden our minds scientifically and culturally. Our "Think different seminar" is a platform, where friends, colleagues and/or invited guests present to us their research, their way of working and thinking, their opinions, and/or their ideas. Traditionally, we continue discussions in the "Harmonie".

Our "think different seminars" are usually held on Friday's in the seminar room of the Salzburger lab.
