Communication and cooperation are inherent parts of research. Results are discussed, ideas are born not only in private but very often during meetings, workshops, conferences. With varying meeting formats DCPS offers possibilities to meet, to learn from each other and to cooperate. The DCPS Day is a yearly event with short presentations of all DCPS research groups and of currently funded DCPS projects followed by a get-together in the evening.
The first DCPS Day took place on June 6, 2013 at the lecture hall of Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum. The afternoon was highlighted by the first DCPS Science Slam and closed by a barbecue.
More than 120 people attended the second and third DCPS Day on June 5, 2014 and June 4, 2015.
