Group meeting 2020
January 16, 2020
On January 15 and 16, the Ghent Experimental Particle Physics Group has hold a group meeting and team building activity in Vecmont near La Roche-en-Ardenne. The main goal of the group meeting is to allow PhD students and research staff from our different subgroups to present their scientific work, to people outside their specific experiment. In addition to the scientific program, a team building afternoon was organized, such that new and older members of the group learn to know each other a little bit better.
