City Central and Achterwerk are pleased to announce a new monthly collaboration: ‘Field Trips’. Events for the bright young minds of Groningen, where we encourage guest speakers and visitors to share insights in their fields of work. Each month we invite a young speaker to join us and talk about what he or she considers a ‘hot topic’.
Topic: 'Surfing through space-time'.
We're excited to host not just one but two astro cool kids, Joe Callingham (Australia) and Kelley Hess (USA). They work as astronomers at local research institute Astron and will tell us about gravitational waves, how they came to be here, and what on earth they do on an average working day. You'll get the chance to ask your questions, discuss and have a drink afterwards.
Special cocktail for the occasion: tba
