Stay up to date
To stay up to date in rapidly developing fields, scientists regularly interact with international colleagues. Conferences and other (scientific) events are an excellent way to facilitate such a continent-spanning knowledge exchange. But science is not just for scientists. Scientific researchers are also eager to engage with the public to show what they are doing, and why the work matters in a general sense. VIB stimulates and supports this scientific outreach at all levels. Joris Messens’ lab members continuously organize or take part in such events.
