CCS Retreat

A ‘retreat’ for all members of the CCS took place over 2 days in October 2016 at Dragsholm Castle in northwestern Zealand. This was a great success and provided a relaxed forum for the different teams to review the work of the entire CCS, to establish new collaborative projects, and to interact socially.
