A word about tomorrow

Sfeerbeeld a word about tomorrow

What keeps you busy? What are you curious about and what puzzles you? This could be anything. For example: How do we keep our neighborhood safe? What can we do about online bullying? And will we still eat meat in the future? Asking these kinds of questions is important, because one question can change the world. Including your question.   

Scientific research starts with these kinds of questions. That's why researchers from Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht would like to talk to you and other Utrechters in October. We will do this in various libraries in the city. Everyone is welcome; it doesn't matter how old you are or what your background is.  

What do you want to know?

What kind of world would you like to live in? An which question is most urgent to you? That could be anything. Such as how can we stop online bullying? Will we still be eating meat in the future? How do we keep your neighbourhood safe? And how do we ensure equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of where you live or what your background is? We are very interested in what you think is important for the future. During a fun programme in a library near you, you can discuss this with a researcher. Together you might come up with a question for science that will change the world.

Utrecht Research Agenda

The researchers of Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht are looking for questions that could lead to new research or a surprising twist in existing research. These questions have a chance of being included in the Utrecht Research Agenda. This is a list of subjects that scientists are working on or will be working on. So you will be able to influence that directly!

Where and when? 

You can meet in person with one of our scientists at various locations around the city. You can do so in various Utrecht libraries on various dates. Will we see you in the library? We are looking forward to talking to you!

Your question can change the world. You can also ask it online. Want to know more? Read more about the Utrecht Research Agenda and 385 years of science in Utrecht.
