The foundations are laid

The school lab „Light & Schools“ will get its own building: the foundations for the „HAUS DER LEHRE – LIGHT & SCHOOLS“ were laid last week. The new building will broaden Universität Hamburg’s presence on Campus Bahrenfeld. The one-storey, multifunctional and transparent building close to the Institute of Laser Physics and the Centre for Optical Quantum Technologies will be completed in the beginning of 2019.
