Date of news: 15 September 2022

On SeptembeGroepsfoto de Waaghr 2, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of our High Energy Physics Department with current and former employees. Béatrice Bonga skillfully led the afternoon program with lectures in which Adriaan König gave us an insight into what it was like in the early days. Next was the lecture by Frank Linde (Nikhef), who gave his perspective on working together with the Nijmegen group for the past 25 years. After a short break Sabine Hunnius (Director of the Baby Research Center and professor at Radboud University) provided more insight into how babies learn.The afternoon ended with a social gathering and drinks. In the evening there was a festive dinner for the current employees in the Waagh which was cheerfully framed with a pub quiz by Harm Schoorlemmer. As a lasting reminder, a photo book about HEP's 60-year history has been compiled by Annelies Oosterhof. The book can be requested by the secretariat.
