The Hintze Lectures highlight contemporary developments in Astrophysics and Cosmology. They are run by the Oxford Hintze Centre for Astrophysical Surveys.
A generous donation by The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation enables world leading researchers to visit Oxford and deliver a lecture as part of this series.
