R3i inspired in Copenhagen

On the 4th of December, the LUCCI young scientist group R3i went to Copenhagen for teambuilding and inspiration. Several hours were spent on the National museum, where topics such as dendrochronology, pollen dating and Scandinavian history were discussed.

As the winter darkness set in, they continued to Tivoli in order to enjoy the Christmas decorations, drink some glögg or glühwein and enjoy other team-building activities.

In a joint effort, the R3i members won a new mascot for R3i, a plush toy in the shape of a squared frog. It was named “LP-Jay” and both Niklas and Ylva are sharing custody of the frog on R3is account.
