Editorial: We wish you a summer in the spirit of the matinee

Dear colleagues,

a year ago at this time, we were rejoicing at the relaxation of anti-epidemic measures that had long restricted faculty operations and, above all, our mutual meetings. In that context, we were reminiscing about the successful Alumni Day, which brought the Faculty to life in June of the anniversary year 2019. We are extremely pleased to look back today on a similar event that allowed the Faculty staff to end the academic year in a pleasant and informal manner, with a drink in hand and music resounding through the courtyard. We were also delighted by your interest in exploring new places in the faculty and trying new things. Whether you attended the "afternoon matinee" or not, we offer you a little look back at it through the lens of Marek Augustin and wish you to enjoy your summer in exactly that spirit. Thank you so much for attending the event, and let's recharge our batteries over the break for the fall semester when we have more events like this coming up, which we hope nothing will interrupt. We will look forward to further cooperation and meetings.
