Dear All. Christmas is approaching, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts in the past year. The Department is engaged in research, education and innovation at the highest level, and we would therefore like to thank for your outstanding contributions and good cooperation in the year that has passed. In 2018 there are certainly many new and exciting projects, and we wish you all a great holiday and start of the new year.


Registration deadline for scientific publications: January 15, 2018. At that time, all publications with publication year 2017 must be registered in Pure. The number of scientific articles is used increasingly as a measure of the Department's performance, and each article has an influence on our basic research funding.
