MBG Focus Talks

MBG Focus Talks are organised by the individual research groups at the department, which often means that MBG Focus Talks deals with more specialised topics.

Hosts at MBG Focus Talks are free to use this template for the announcement, which gives the host an easy possibility to create a professional layout.
