Sir Paul Callaghan Symposium

Paul Callaghan in the classroom

The MacDiarmid Institute celebrated Sir Paul Callaghan's life last week. The first day was occupied by a range of talks touching on Paul's scientific contributions and achievements. The following day explored Pauls wider impact and discourse on society, economy, university life and the preservation of New Zealand’s nature.

Speakers of both days delivered talks on many of the facets of Paul's life, his various (research) interests, his innovations and passions. They gave account on the energy Paul invested in everything he did. Talks were passionate, captivating and often very personal.
