2015 Dragon 3 Symposium and best poster award


before summer holidays I had the pleasure to participate 2015 Dragon 3 Symposium held in beautiful city of Interlaken, Switzerland. Dragon program is about co-operation between ESA member states and China. The symposium had good atmosphere, and I personally was delighted to receive "best poster award" for my poster presentation. Thanks! Feels good.

As I mentioned the city of Interlaken  between two lakes  is beautiful and surrounded by great mountains. The mayor of Interlaken gave a nice opening to the symposium and told that these days Asians are the most important tourist group in the region, and they come to Switzerland to visit mountains and to buy watches. This fact can clearly be seen in Interlaken, although, I believe that this time around there were even more Chinese people than usual!

On the way back to Zürich Airport I had a chance to visit Bern, and the Einsteinhaus in particular. In that little apartment he wrote the "Annus Mirabilis papers". The one on the photoelectric effect got him Nobel Prize in 1921.

Below are some photos.


The symposium plenaries were held in a very fancy room. Probably an old theatre.
The workshops were held in normal rooms. Here Erkki is presenting something fancy with Einstein in the middle.
Nice view! 
These skydivers were everywhere!

Oh, and the "best poster award"!
