The Open Day is an annual event that brings together members of the CSB and outside speakers for talks, poster sessions, facility updates, networking and socialising.  It showcases research achievements and technical developments and gives members of the CSB the chance to get to know each other's interests better, to strike up collaborations and welcome new members.
