19th International Summer School on Immunology
Summer School Venue: Hotel Sirena, Hvar
The island of Hvar, also known as Croatia´s sunniest island, is the crown-jewel of the Dalmatian islands. With more than 2700 hours of sun per year, and due to its location at the center of the Adratic sailing routes, it has been inhabitated sind pre-historic times and has now become a tourist Mecca of the Mediterranean. The island is known for its green setting, extraordinary beauty and the harmonious setting of small towns, hillsides coved in pine forest and cultivated areas with vineyards, olive groves, orchards and lavender fields.
The Town of Hvar is the largest settlement on the island. Centuries have ground its stone and shaped its appearance. Hvar is proud to present its visitors with one of the oldest municipal theatres in Europe. The town is Croatia´s trendiest summer destination and a "must-be" spot.
Students are invited to bring a poster to present their scientific projects.
The size is 150 cm x 100 cm (height x width).
