FYSICA 2017

At FYSICA 2017, 'local hero' Ben Feringa, professor at University of Groningen and winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016, mesmerized us physicists by showing his work on molecular machines. All speakers and sessions are listed in the program of the event. 

 

FYSICA 2016

We felt very honoured that one of the winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2015, Takaaki Kajita, attended FYSICA 2016 and gave a lecture. The program of FYSICA 2016 can be found here. As you can see in the program, spectacular recent breakthroughs in (astro)physics, like quantum entanglement and gravitational waves, were brought to the public.
