SENSE symposium "Science and Impact", 15 November 2023

We are happy to announce that the registration for the next SENSE symposium on 15 November on the very topical issue of Science and Impact has opened.

Given, among others, the many climate-change-related extreme weather events of this summer, the pressing PFAS issue, and many other urgent matters. The responsibility of science to contribute to the analyses of and solutions for these issues, is felt by many within academia. But how to be societally involved and at the same time keep to scientific standards and values? These and other issues can be discussed during the SENSE symposium.
These matters involve anyone within the network, irrespective of your field of research, so we hope to meet many of you and have fruitful and inspiring discussions

The meeting will be held at VU Amsterdam from 9:30-17:30, including drinks afterwards.
