This Week’s Discoveries Archive
Every Tuesday from 13.00 until 13.40!
Scientists from our faculty will present their most recent discoveries. This “lunch-colloquium” will take place in De Sitterzaal (Groundlevel J.H.Oortgebouw, Niels Bohrweg 2) and lasts from 13.00 until 13.40 o’clock. Everybody is welcome. The short presentations (15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of discussion) will be such that everybody should be able to understand what has been discovered. A lunch to Discover is provided at 12.45 near De Sitterzaal.
