Information on ESTEC Internal Seminars


From 2021 onwards, the ESTEC open/internal seminars form part of the SCI-S Seminar series


Where? When? What?

The seminars will take place in Newton, Einstein or Escape Dance Room, on Friday mornings at 11:00.

There will be two types of talk:

For new staff, in particular RFs: the idea is that within the first month of entering the department, the new RFs should give a 20-30 minute presentation in order to introduce themselves to the staff. Subjects are open but the talk could be used to explain what you have worked on and what you plan to do at ESTEC (if you already know) in a few words.
For veteran RFs and scientists: the idea is even simpler. If you have been here for one or two years - what did you achieve (or try to)? A 30 minute talk and 10 minutes for questions should be sufficient to convince people you had a lot of fun working at the SSO!

Instructions for speakers

Speakers are asked to provide the organizers (Rachana Bhatawdekar and Hans Huybrighs) with an abstract and a short biography (PhD topic and institute for RFs, fields of research and interest) at least two weeks before the talk so as we can send out the announcement and update the timetable.

Material provided

We can provide you with everything required for your presentation: Overhead, video projector, computer, conventional pointer, laser pointer. Please send a note to the organisers to request the material you need, preferably not two minutes before the talk.
