Because we strongly believe that the best results can be achieved by working together, we actively collaborate (and always seek new collaborations) with other groups both within our department, and the scientific community worldwide. As theorists, we especially value the opportunity to collaborate with experimental groups, which we do extensively within our own BN department at TU Delft and various groups in physics and biology at Leiden University. Although long-distance collaborations are more logistically challenging, we do have a number of ongoing projects with groups further away, and have ongoing discussions with many others.
