Would you like to hear inspiring stories of the ERC laureates, one of the most prestigious international research grants? Are you interested in what their science is all about and how it relates to your daily live? Or would you like to visit the lab where all great science is taking shape?
Join us on 28th March for the ERC Day celebrating the European Research Council (ERC) 10 years anniversary where the ERC laureates from Utrecht University, UMC Utrecht and Hubrecht Institute will share their stories.
What to expect?
You will get inspired by 10 short fascinating talks from ERC laureates during a mini symposium in the morning. Vote for your favorite speaker! During the networking lunch you can meet more ERC laureates and hear about their interesting research projects. See the project demonstrations during the Lab-on-a-spot science fair, while you enjoy your lunch. In the afternoon, we split: researchers who think about applying for an ERC grant themselves, can join the ‘ERC - Boosting your career’ panel session with ERC laureates. Everyone else can register for one of our Campus tours: visit some ERC labs on the spot and see where the ground-breaking research is taking place!
