During the day there will be the opportunity for participants to present their work and there will be a plenary discussion about ‘the Future of Funding’. We will close the day with a social event and a dinner. Thanks to our sponsors the day is free of charge. Interested? Register now. The symposium will take place on June 7th in the West-Indisch huis in Amsterdam.
