Brightlands Science LecturesEvent date: January 25, 201712:00u
End date: January 25, 2017
The first of four Brightlands Science Lectures in 2017 which will take place Wednesday, January 25, 2017 (12.00-14.00h).
Collaborative innovation is key to the further development of the Brightlands campuses. That’s why Brightlands introduces the Brightlands Science Lectures, where leading scientists present their work on innovative developments in the fields of materials and health, which are relevant for society.
The Brightlands Science Lectures will be a platform for talented, entrepreneurial, academic and industrial scientists in the field of materials, where you will not only learn and obtain new insights relevant for your career, but you can also meet with your peers during the free lunch.
Furthermore, young talented scientists in the beginning of their career will kick start every Brightlands Science Lecture by presenting a 15-minutes Kickstarter Lecture, before giving the floor to the leading keynote scientific speaker.
This way the Brightlands science community supports scientists to make a difference and contribute to a more sustainable society – and that’s exactly our mission!
