This Week's Discoveries

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

This Week’s Discoveries has been well established in our Faculty. In 15-minute talks, two of our scientists or guests give presentations 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 share the latest results and breakthroughs. The main aim is to give young researchers (PhD students, postdocs) the opportunity to present their latest results, but we also like to pay attention to the cutting-edge research that has led to successful grants.
