EXCURSIONS

SUGGESTED EXCURSIONS

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

DTU (1)

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.

WINDMILL PARK

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.

EUROPEAN SPALLATION SOURCE (2)

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.

AMAGER BEACH (3)

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 DANISH NATIONAL AQUARIUM – THE BLUE PLANET (4)

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.

MUSEUM HOP (5)

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

AFTER EXCURSIONS

For those who arrive back early, due to a shorter excursion, there will be an option of joining some extra activities.

COPENHAGEN HARBOUR BATH

Those who didn’t sign up for going to the beach, can go for a swim at the harbour bath.
