This Week's Discoveries

Scientists from the Faculty of Science present recent discoveries to colleagues of various fields.

Note: after the lectures taking place on 19 December, there will be a short winter break in this series. This Week's Discoveries will start again in 2018 on 16 January.

This Week’s Discoveries takes place every Tuesday between 12.15 and 13.00 hours in the De Sitterzaal of the Oort building. This seminar has been well established in our faculty. In two 15 minute talks two scientists give a presentation aimed at a broad audience. During the past years this colloquium became a central forum for all scientists from our faculty to come together and to share the latest results and breakthroughs. The main aim is to give young researchers (PhD-students, Post-docs) the opportunity to present their latest results, but we would also like to pay attention to the cutting edge research that has led to successful grants.
