Physics Alumni Day
On 23 April, the first Physics Alumni Day took place with tours and lectures by Florian Schreck and Mark Golden. Alumnus Jo van den Brand (Nikhef and VU) gave an overview of results in gravitational waves.
The physics chapter of the University of Amsterdam Alumni community was founded in November 2015. The event on 23 April was the first event organised by the chapter. Around 40 alumni attended the event, which took place at Science Park 904 – a building most of the attendees were not yet familiar with. Afterwards, one of the attendees was 'pleasantly surprised' to note that 'Since we left there has been considerable progress in physics, both in general and at the UvA.'
We hope that these kind of ‘surprises’ will be the recurring element in the activities of the physics chapter.
