Thesis nailing

PhD student Maurice Parrinjaquet nailed his thesis at the KI library. Traditional hammer in hand, Maurice hammered the golden nail on the wooden slab from which all recent theses of the institute hang unassumingly.

The emotive event marked the start of the final count-down for his thesis defense, to take place on December 16. Attracted by the prospect of champagne and refreshments, fellow lab mates joined in for the occassion.
