Join us in the celebration of 90 years FWO at Kennismakers event on 14 December !
FWO (Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek) is welcoming over 100 national and international speakers sparking innovative ideas during the one-day scientific congress Kennismakers (Knowledge Makers).
Participants can design their programme based on 30 thematic sessions, clustered around 5 themes:
- Scientific Research Programme reflecting major challenges in society, such as welfare, health, AI and circular economy.
- Scientific Debate where Responsible Research and Innovation, Open Science and Valorization will be discussed in different sessions.
- Science from another perspective: poetry, dance and music.
- The Science Agenda: during a campaign over 10 000 questions were asked by citizens who would like to see answered scientists from different disciplines. Fundamentally inspiring science.
- Science Communication is a trade on its own, workshops will help researchers translating their findings and telling their story to a larger public.
We have the pleasure to invite you to our booth during the day, where visitors can discover the power of light technology through various demos. On display: our national icon Manneke Pis explains internal light reflection for high-speed communication, photonics for food safety and authentication and for Clean Sky project.
Registration is free but required through Kennismakers . You can subsequently compile your personal programme for the day, starting at 8:15 until 16:00. As from the closing session at 17:30, participants are invited to enjoy the networking reception.
Looking forward to meet you !
