After months of video calls, mail exchanges, and monologues in front of the mirror, the be.h community has held its "Equinox Meeting" at the beautiful Hof Van Liere in Antwerp. Gathered on the second floor of this 16th-century city palace with indoor cows, gardens and galleries, the fifty participants - the majority on site -… Continue reading be.h is back…in presence!
Michael Tytgat has been awarded the annual science communication prize for conceiving and leading the Cool Physics Days project. The jury has nothing but praise for the trans- and interdisciplinary approach to bring a not-so-obvious branch of science (particle physics) to the general public. In all areas, thought was given to reducing barriers and providing… Continue reading One KVAB 2020 Science Communication awards goes to a be.h member
We are still looking for bright candidates for 5 PhD positions within the network. In January, we opened 10 PhD position in Particle Physics, for theory, phenomenology, and experimental profiles. The response has been huge, with more than 100 applicants, but we are looking for few gems. Also some of the best candidates obtained other… Continue reading Graduating in June?
As you may have seen, we have a new cool logo. Every project needs a logo, right? It will soon appear on our talks at conferences, and on our coffee cups... because every physicist needs coffee. But what makes our logo so fantastic? And what does it mean? The full title of our project is… Continue reading We’ve got a new logo!
