When & where: Thursday, January 16th, 12.00pm @ HSG-Mensa

DocDrinks on Ice


DocDrinks go ice skating! Mulled wine, good company, and (optional) cheese fondue await you. The perfect way to enjoy wintertime!

On 23 January, we'll have our first DocDrinks of the year on ice at Winterzauber St.Gallen! You don't need to love ice skating - you can also just enjoy some hot mulled wine (first couple ones are on us, as usual), or a cheese fondue (not included - we have reserved some places). The table for Fondue lovers is reservered for 8 pm.

Please register, so we can make adequate reservations.

New PhDs are warmly welcome! You have new colleagues? Bring them along and introduce them to the DocNet community.

When & where: Thursday, January 23rd, 7.00pm @ St. Galler Eiszauber, Zeughaus Kreuzbleiche, Burgstrasse 50, 9000 St. Gallen
