Offices and some labs moved to building S12

(03-10-2018)

Begin September 2018 our offices have temporary been moved to building S12 (see contact information)
The biggest part of our labs are still in building S1: ground floor. (but also in S3 and S12 )

This all is due to the renovation of floors 1,2 and 3 of building S1 which should end in 2020.
