The ESRF Colloquia series, which kicked off in 2016, has now reached cruising speed. The past few quarterly talks, which are free of charge and open to the general public, have routinely brought in more than 150 people.
The topics addressed go far beyond issues directly related to the synchrotron’s activities. And the speakers—from climatologist Jean Jouzel, who was Vice President of the IPCC when he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, to Damir Buskulic, who helped detect gravitational waves, to Al Gore—are high-profile members of the international scientific community.
The next talk in the series, to be held on March 17 at 2:30 p.m., will feature British biochemist David Stuart, who will address his work on viruses observed at the atomic scale.
