NWO Life2022: Resilience

  • 24 - 25 May 2022
  • Egmond aan Zee (NL)
  • NWO

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

Resilience

The overarching theme for NWO Life2022 is ‘Resilience’. Broadly defined, resilience is the ability to adapt to difficult situations. Resilience relates to all biological scale levels: from cellular resilience – which is influenced by genetic factors – and resilience at the level of individual organisms to resilience of ecosystems.
Moreover, it is currently a literally fitting theme, since society is recovering from the covid pandemic. After last year’s successful online edition, we aim to organise an edition of NWO Life where we can welcome everyone live again at the venue!

One of the plenary key-note speakers is Marten Scheffer (WUR).

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.

Deadlines

Deadline for abstract submission for oral presentations: 10 March 2022
Deadline for poster abstract submission: 14 April 2022
