Research ESRIG - Energy and Sustainability Research Institute Groningen ESRIG symposium 2019

ESRIG symposium 2019

The mission of performing energy and sustainability research is executed in a balanced way, with both an experimental part (laboratory and field experiments), and a part with model studies and studies into societal interaction with scientific knowledge. The goal of the ESRIG symposium is to showcase the breadth and quality of the research being conducted at ESRIG.

You are cordially invited to attend this symposium, which will be held in the large lecture theatre of the Energy Academy Building (5159.0029) on the Zernike campus of the University of Groningen.

But there is more! This Afternoon we would also like to mark the retirement of Dr. P.D.M. (Peter) Weesie. On May 19th, Peter will officially retire. Peter will give his farewell lecture at 15.30h, looking back at a 32 year fruitful career at the University of Groningen.
