In 2019 Peter Higgs will celebrate his 90th birthday and we are planning a year of events to mark this. We are looking forward to a year of varied activities to honour Peter's legacy aiming to engage with scientists, current students, alumni and the wider public.
Our competition to design a birthday card for Peter is open now to all children at primary school or nursery in Scotland, see the link below. We are delighted to announce our judging panel will be Suzanne Higgs, Christophe Englert and Lily Asquith and are looking forward to seeing the entries.
We have already held a public lecture by Nima Arkani-Hamed and the first "Beyond the Lab" workshop held at the Higgs Centre for Innovation. Last month we held the Inaugural Higgs Lecture in March given by Prof. Gian Giudice entitled "From Higgs to the Cosmos". Tickets for the event sold out and the audience enjoyed a very engaging talk and discussion.
Details of future events will appear here shortly, including a day of celebration on Friday 20 Sept, 2019.
