Joint Colloquium of CeNS and the Department of Physics

The CeNS Colloquium aims at fostering the interdisciplinary education of the members from CeNS by inviting internationally renowned speakers as well as researchers from CeNS to give an introduction into their research field and present their latest discoveries.

The Colloquium takes place from 15:15-17:00 (the session starts at 15:15 with informal discussions, coffee and cookies; the lecture starts at 15:30). The last lectures of each month are preceded by the lecture series on NanoBioTechnology organized by the International Doctorate Program NanoBioTechnology.
