Public Lectures

NIAS and The Lorentz Center hold that informing the general public is an important task of the scientific community. Although not part of our core activities, we aim to facilitate communication of the general public with fellows and participants of workshops.

Collaboration Rijksmuseum Boerhaave
The Lorentz Center and the Rijksmuseum Boerhaave in Leiden collaborate since 2013 in organizing public lectures around workshops, which are often part of the NIAS-Lorentz Program. The lectures are usually being held at the museum by workshop participants.
