NCOH Science Café 2023: Making connections

September 28, 2023

Join the NCOH Science Café in Groningen on 9 November to get up to speed with the latest developments and meet fellow NCOH colleagues. 

The central theme of the event is Making connections to provide the stage to PhD students, who will compete for the NCOH Pitch Award through pitching their projects. In addition, four young or new principal investigators within NCOH will talk about their scientific research line(s), thereby introducing themselves and expanding their network.

We are very glad that Professor Nina van Sorge (UMC Amsterdam) will provide the plenary lecture. And join the speed-dating session organized by our Young NCOH to get acquainted with colleagues within NCOH, and we close with drinks and talks.
