We are planning 6 excursions in total with the possibility of changing in number. 3 will be with academic content, and 3 will be with social or cultural content
At DTU (The Technical University of Denmark) we will visit a number of labs including:
– Niflheim: A 846 TeraFLOPS supercomputer.
– The FLUIDS lab: A lab specializing in biophysics with focus on fluid dynamics and cellular membranes.
– The Ultra-High Vacuum Lab: A lab working with sub 10 -13 bar pressure used to study catalytic material properties.
– Nanomade: A group that works with physics at a nanoscale, such as 2D graphite planes.
And several other labs.
Furthermore, we will meet students and researchers that works and studies at DTU.
The windmill park has a total of 10 2MW windmills. this excursion will be a three-hour boat trip out to the windmills. On the trip a guide will tell about the construction and operation of the windmills.
In Lund – Sweden, ESS – The European Spallation Source is currently being buildt. The facility, which is the world’s largest neutron spallation source should be up and running in 2023. We have contacted them for a tour of the unfinished facility. This would give you an unprecedented insight in how these large-scale experiments are being built. But because it is under construction we will not know if we can offer this until a year before the conference.
Should you need a day off, we can take a trip to Amager Beach park. This is a wonderful beach with a great wooden pier. From the beach you have a great view out to one of the windmill parks around Copenhagen.
The Blue Planet is the danish national aquarium with 12000 m 2 and 3 different areas.
– The Nordic lakes and seas.
– Tropical lakes and rivers.
– The ocean.
The aquarium is the largest in the northern Europe and houses more than 20000 animals.
We will visit 3-4 museums during the day. There will be a possibility of walking with one of our volunteers which will give you approximatly 1 hour at each museum, but you get your tickets at the beginning of the day and will be able to do the visits at your own leisure.
– Zoological Museum
– State Museum of Art
– Geological Museum
– National History Museum
For those who arrive back early, due to a shorter excursion, there will be an option of joining some extra activities.
Those who didn’t sign up for going to the beach, can go for a swim at the harbour bath.
For those who wants to see more of the city, than they did on the previous city tour, we will have a more detailed city tour around Copenhagen. We will visit places such as
– Round Tower
– The Little Mermaid
– The Botanical Gardens
