Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge


KICC are pleased to host regular regular half-day or full-day internal meetings, usually one or two per term. These focus on the science themes of the Kavli Institute however they also encompass cross-themed meetings.

These informal events promote discussion and are centred around a set of talks, with good representation from students, postdoctoral researchers and fellows. Wherever possible, external contributors may also attend in-person as day visitors.

The next event focuses on 'Feedback in and around galaxies'

Tuesday 7th December 2021
