ANP Retreat 2015: Bad Bentheim

On Thursday and Friday June 18 & 19, 2015, Applied Nanophotonics organized its first lustrum retreat at the Kurhaus in Bad Bentheim. About 75 participants from COPS, LPNO (including coworkers from Carsten Fallnich’s group at the WWU), MACS, NBP and OS followed a program emphasizing scientific discussion and interaction of various topics along the research interests of the groups. Highlights were the talks from our external guests: Toon Coenen from Delmic and Henri Werij from TNO.
