Venue & dates
The School will start with a dinner on Sunday and conclude with a lunch on Thursday, the planned activities are outlined in the agenda. We will organize a bus transfer from/to Poznań at the beginning and end of the school. The participants will need to cover their travel costs to/from Poznań.
