Our picture of the month

In July our institute invited members, former members and partners to our traditional summer BBQ, which could be held for the first time since 2016.

Prof. Heitmeir welcomed the guests and reported about the last 22 years when he headed the institute. A history of this period in pictures was presented to him by the institute members.
