Summer School 2022

DBE Summer School

After two challenging Covid years, the 2022 DBE Summer School took place in person again, this time in the beautiful Black Forest in Grafenhausen, Germany.

Around 20 students from the PhD program in Biomedical Engineering as well as colleagues from Swiss TPH participated in this exciting event and immersed themselves in the topic of Big Data. Supported by guest speakers with backgrounds in supercomputing, machine learning, fairness, data engineering, ethics, and data science, the students learned not only what Big Data is, but also how it relates to their own work and deal with its challenges. In addition to an interesting program of seminars, lectures, interactive sessions and discussion panels that addressed typical challenges students face during their PhD, the social program and beautiful location rounded off the Summer School into an educational, exciting and collaborative event that offered the opportunity to make new contacts and friendships.

The participants thank the organizing team and the student representatives for the great organization and hosting of this year's Summer School.
