The Rectorate engaged in and at Chemistry

Thursday last week, rector Dag Rune Olsen and his close co-workers in the Rectorate visited the MN Faculty and each and one of its seven departments, chemistry included.  At our department we invited the dignitaries to spend the allotted 30 minutes in one of our laboratories, to take part in our enthusiasm for chemistry and to gain some first-hand experience with our subject. This was a very nice opportunity to give some examples of what we as a department and chemistry as a discipline contribute with in the larger, societal context. We can always use a helping hand from Rector!
