Status of reorganization
Published on:05 September 2013

End of August, the draft reorganization and personnel plan was presented to the KVI staff members. According to this plan, KVI will proceed in a reduced form, under the name of KVI-CART (Centre for Advanced Radiation Technology). The development of advanced and not commercially available high-tech physical instrumentation will be an important new aspect. Part of the scientific groups will go over to the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMNS) of the University of Groningen. To solve a financial deficit of € 600.000, nine members of the support staff will become supernumerary.
