On April 12 2024, we will celebrate that the Nanoscience program exists for 20 years. This will be done with a Symposium where all alumni, students, former and present teachers and staff are invited. Local (PhD) students are also welcome to join. We will have 8 prominent alumni telling about their recent work and two poster sessions for all alumni and present students to present their current work. Industrial partners are welcomed to showcase their companies as well.
