Between May 7th and 9th more than 170 members of the Zernike Institute National Research Centre visited the beautiful island of Vlieland. During a three-day symposium mainly the junior staff presented the beauty of nanoscience during oral and poster presentations. Besides our own team we were happy to welcome Prof. Caroline Ross (MIT), who presented the keynote lecture entitled “Magnetic Insulators for Spintronic and Magnetooptical Devices”.
The Vlieland conference has a long-standing tradition in the Zernike Institute National Research Centre (NRC), which is running the advanced materials research program of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, the Stratingh Institute for Chemistry and the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute. The meeting in the dunes of Vlieland combines the presentation of the latest results, discussing options for collaborative projects and a big portion of fun.
