Last Saturday, a large number of highly interested visitors (>2000) attended our RIMLS public day. Many researchers from different departments organised a fantastic repertoire of activities for everyone: young and old.They prepared an active, interesting and diverse program composed of lectures, demonstrations, workshops, guided tours, photo booth etc. The atmosphere was highly stimulating with lots of enthusiasm and curiosity.
Overall, it was a very successful day, very well received and certainly worth repeating. We thank everybody wholeheartedly for their contribution to this unique event.
The highlights our first public day can be seen bij these photo's and by this video.
