To actively encourage the field of theoretical cosmology and to set an informal stage for the exchange of ideas, the Dutch theoretical cosmology community organises Friday afternoon meetings approximately 6 times a year — usually on the first Friday of the month. The meetings typically start in the afternoon with a main speaker, followed by a short break to continue with another seminar or journal club discussion on some topic of current interest. We end the afternoon with drinks. The supporting institutes in Leiden, Amsterdam, Groningen, Utrecht where recently joined by the strings and cosmology group in Leuven and take turns in hosting the event.
Triangle meetings: Theoretical Cosmology

The Dutch cosmology community was awarded national program funding by the FOM in 2015 for a period of 5 years. This funding allows the members of the national program to boost their cohesive research efforts, attract new talent and build new and sustainable bridges to the Dutch astronomy community to support and strengthen the cosmology research efforts in the Netherlands. 

On the website you will find information on the national program, job vacancies, participating researchers and announcements of our monthly theoretical cosmology (THC) meetings. If you want to register for the THC mailing list please go to
