On Friday the 28th of October the seventh annual Reedijk Symposium will be held. During this day lectures will be given by several of our colleagues and two external guest speakers: "Solvation Science - THz spectroscopy provides new answers to an old topic" by Prof. dr. Martina Havenith (Ruhr-Universität Bochum), and "Can we make life in the lab?" by Prof. dr. Sijbren Otto (RUG).
