Mini-projects are short (one week) activities where members of the Center get together to work on joint research projects. The aims of the mini-projects are 1) to summon a large working force that focus on generating interesting data for one or several publications in a relatively short time, 2) to trigger creative thinking and let new ideas flourish, and 3) to socialize and have a good time.

We aim to have two mini-project weeks per year, sometimes addressing more than one research question.
