Saying goodbye to Ben!

We hope that it is rather “auf Wiedersehen” rather than goodbye!  Ben‘s time in the FRG is coming to an end, and we celebrated, true to group character, with food! We all headed down to the harbour side and enjoy pizza (and pies!)!

Great way to say thank you to Ben for all his efforts over the last 5 years! Enjoy the well-deserved break!

Mini symposium with Florian von Wrochem, Sony

We had the pleasure to host Dr Florian von Wrochem from Sony’s Materials Laboratories (Stuttgart, Germany).  It was a great opportunity to put together an exciting symposium, with former FRG member Dr James Thomas (funded by the BCFN, and now a post-doc in Oxford) as well as Liam speaking.

Photos to follow soon!
