On February 8, 2024 the KIVI-Department of Telecommunications together with NUC-URSI invite you to a theme evening on the developments of Radio Science in the Netherlands.
These are based on the presentations earlier shown at the URSI GASS 2023 XXXVth General Assembly and Scientific Symposium of The International Union of Radio Science.

The URSI GASS 2023 was earlier held on 19-26 Augustus 2023 in Sapporo, Japan.

The conference presentations of five speakers of the Dutch Institutions will be held on this evening.

URSI (Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale) is a non-governmental and non-profit organization under the International Council for Science.
It is responsible for stimulating and coordinating, on an international basis, studies, research, applications, scientific exchange, and communication in the fields of radio science.
