What is NWO Life
Life is a unique, inspiring, annual national congress covering all disciplines and scale levels in the Dutch Life Sciences, from femtometre to kilometre, from cell to planet. Life2021 is the second edition and will be held online.
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 readers and their master students at Universities of Applied Sciences (HBO’s) are also invited to join and contribute.
