Grand Office Opening

at Bessererstrasse in Ulm


On December 13 we had been celebrating the opening of our new headquarters at Bessererstrasse 13-15.

Both Association spokespersons, Prof. Ketterle and Prof. Sakmann were signing a lot of Einstein plaques and we had the honor to welcome our mayor Gunter Czisch and some other VIPs. Everybody agreed that the evening had been very successful!


We wish you a happy and successful New Year 2020!
