During academic year 2020/21, Universities of Leeds (Dr. Papic), Loughborough (Dr. Lazarides) and Nottingham (Prof. Garrahan) will be running a joint seminar series on non-equilibrium physics. The seminars will be hosted on Zoom and typically take place on Wednesdays at 3pm UK time. More information and schedule: https://theory.leeds.ac.uk/leeds-loughborough-nottingham-seminar/

Our group members have spent two weeks in the Spanish Pyrenees attending the programme on “Entanglement in strongly correlated systems” http://benasque.org/2020scs/  In addition to fruitful scientific discussions and presenting their posters, our PhD students have also enjoyed what little snow there was on the nearby slopes (see below).
