Casimir Science Day for PI's



12:00 - 18:00 hrs


The Hague


On Thursday June 29th, we organize a new edition of the Casimir Science Day! During this day, the science at Casimir takes the central stage. This year, the Casimir Science Day is aimed at Casimir groupleaders specifically.

Aimed at Casimir PI's, the Casimir Science Day will provide an update on the science going on at Casimir, and introduce new PI's. In addition, by bringing you physically together, we hope to enhance new collaborations between different groups, and provide an opportunity to discuss mutual scientific interests.

The official program starts at 12:00h with lunch and registration, although you could visit the science museum Museon by yourself beforehand. We end the program at 18:00h after drinks.
