ABOUT LIFE

Register now for NWO Life2021

The registration for NWO Life2021 is open now! NWO Life2021 takes place online, in the afternoons of 26, 27 and 28 May 2021. NWO Life is a unique annual congress covering all disciplines and scale levels in the Dutch Life Sciences, from femtometre to kilometre, from cell to planet. Deadline for registration is 19 May 2021.

NWO Life2021 stands for high quality science, inspiration, discussion, exploration, connection, networking and knowledge utilisation.

Why NWO Life

To connect senior and junior researchers from all different disciplines in the life sciences. To explore and push boundaries. To discuss new or desirable developments in the field. To get inspired by each other’s research and approaches and to start new interdisciplinary collaborations.

The theme for this edition of Life is ‘Networks in Life’. Networking and interdisciplinary collaboration is essential for researchers in the Life Sciences. Networks are also essential in life at all scale levels, from cellular, fungal and neural networks to ecological networks.

Who are invited

Researchers at all scientific research institutes including the university medical centres in the Netherlands, in all career phases including master students, are warmly invited to join and contribute to the programme. People working in the industry, policy makers, and lectors and their master students at Universities of Applied Sciences (HBOs) are also invited to join and contribute.
