MBG Focus Talks

MBG Focus Talks bliver arrangeret af de enkelte forskningsgrupper på instituttet, hvilket ofte betyder, at MBG Focus Talks omhandler mere specialiserede emner.

Med MBG Focus Talks medfølger en skabelon for opslaget, som giver værten en let mulighed for at lave et professionelt layout.
