The program for the fall is starting to come together. So far you can add one seminar to your calendar. On Thursday 23 August, Open Science will focus on characterization. We hope to broaden your knowledge about where to go or who to talk to, when it comes to characterizing your samples.

Wednesday 31 October 2018 we are ready to learn all about how Machine Learning fits with Open Science.
The dates for the rest of the fall program have not yet been set but we expect the themes to be Degradable and Sustainable Materials, and Circular Economy.
