Third Edition - Spring 2020 - 50 years Materials Science in Groningen

In the third edition we celebrate 50 years of materials science in Groningen! While the on campus festivities had to be cancelled/postponed due to the COVID-19 situation, Ria Broer, Jeff de Hosson, Ger Challa, Georges Hadziioannou, George Robbilard, Wim Nieuwpoort and Douwe Wiersma provide a glance at what would have been discussed on podium (and what still may be discussed once a big celebration is possible again). Further we get insights in the research of Shirin Faraji, George Palasantzas, Katja Loos, Edwin Otten, and Wesley Browne. Jim Ottele, PhD student in the group of Sijbren Otto, speaks about his outreach activities and Artem Shulga, founder of QDI Systems, about starting up in academia.
