Visit of the South African Department of Science and Technology and National Research Foundation to the ATLAS experiment

Daniel Adams, Chief Director at the DST, Bishen Singh, the CFO of the NRF and Vincent Spannenberg, Head of Financial Management and Business Administration at iThemba LABS, NRF, visited the ATLAS experiment yesterday. 

We want to thank Karl Jakobs, the spokesperson of the ATLAS experiment, for serving as a guide and Max Klein, the Chairperson of the ATLAS Collaboration Board, who took over form Karl during the session with SA-ATLAS students and staff at CERN. 

Special thanks to  Daniel Adams for the inspirational speech, where he highlighted the importance of the mission that South Africans have at CERN.
