Furthermore, Joost Frenken will speak about the results and prospects of the NIMIC project, Nano-Imaging under Industrial Conditions. Leo diCarlo will talk about the construction of the first working quantum computer.

During the Science Day symposium, there will be an award ceremony, presented by Sytske Casimir, granddaughter of H.B.G. Casimir, for four Casimir students who have made extraordinary achievements. After a smashing performance the Casimir Science Day will end with drinks at the bar of the Scheltemacomplex.
