IFT POSTEN – 14.05.2010
A Word from Department Head
We are now starting the work on updating the strategic plans for the Department of Physics and Technology. The first step is an informal meeting of department council and the research group leaders, to take place at the end of May/beginning of June. Department council’s members will be invited as required. The physics evaluation report will be important for this work. We will come up with more information later as the work progresses.
Wishing you a lovely 17th May weekend,
