Dear fellow-PhD candidates,
It is time for the sixth APROVE Science Night! This is the annual symposium on a general hot topic in research, for all PhD candidates and others who are interested, organized by APROVE, the association for PhD candidates at the Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam.
This year’s theme is “Pushing the limits: the new (im)possibilities in science”, with (inter)national speakers on Open Access, Open Science and new technologies for e.g. crowdsourcing and data collection. The field of science is changing rapidly, resulting in exciting new opportunities. It is now possible to collaborate and share data with scientists from all over the world. Researchers can involve the public through social media, crowdfunding and open access journals. What is possible, and what are the new rules and limits of modern science? This symposium will inspire you to look at new possibilities in your own research, while at the same time encourage you to reflect critically on these new possibilities.
When: Friday 17 April 2015
Where: De Balie , Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10, Amsterdam (near Leidseplein)
Time: 17:30 – late (see program below)
