IKBest5-the 5th international workshop on in-kind best practice
Big science facilities like CERN, ESA, ESS and European-XFEL are working more closely together in exchanging knowledge and resources. At IKBest5, we are going to have a close look at the pros and cons of international Big Science and models for co-operative research.

We will have a session dedicated to practical solutions for late-stage project management, installation and life-cycle management; and
We will have a session to develop concepts for an in-kind future of smaller and more flexible mobile devices post-AGATA and Euroball vis-à-vis large and monolithic facilities.
This is the fifth of a cycle of workshops initiated by the European Spallation Source (ESS) and resumed by GSI, FAIR and the EU horizon2020 project IDEAAL.

KUMPULA PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM ON 18.01.2019 AT 14.15 IN D101

Our first Kumpula Physics colloquium of 2019 will take place on Friday. Our speaker is Eero Castrén, Academy Professor with the Neuroscience Center of HiLIFE here in Helsinki. His lab is investigating neuronal growth factors and their effects on brain development and plasticity. They have focused in particular on how neurotrophic factors are regulated by drugs used for the treatment of brain disorders. In his talk, titled Everything you always wanted to know about the Brain (but did not know whom to ask), he will introduce some of the current ideas around brain function—particularly from the point of view of brain development.

The talk will last about 30 minutes, after which there will be a cocktail reception. Welcome!
