A new future for KVI

28 March 2013

The Board of the University of Groningen has approved a plan regarding the future of KVI put forward by the interim director of the institute. A reorganization will now be set in motion, whereby all jobs will probably be retained.

As part of the plan, some of the academic staff and the majority of the technicians (and their workshops) will be transferred to a new unit: the Centre for Advanced Radiation Technology (CART). This centre will continue to operate from within the current KVI premises, initially as an independent service directly accountable to the Board of the University.

The academic staff not being transferred to CART will be given good opportunities to join the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FWN). The Faculty is looking into creating a new institute in the area of Astrophysics and Subatomic Physics, which will bring together staff from the current Kapteyn Astronomical Institute, the current Centre for Theoretical Physics and the KVI.
