Program Friday, March 29th, afternoon: Research discussion meeting
Dr. Stähli, Niederseer and Breitenstein will already be in Antwerp on March 29th in the afternoon. Just like last year,
we will set up an open research discussion meeting. Researchers (PhD students and their promotors) from all
Flemish universities are invited. They will have the opportunity to pitch their research in short presentations, which will
be discussed by the attending Faculty. This afternoon may form an ideal platform to develop new insights and network
with colleagues that have the same research and clinical interests.
This meeting will take place in the boardroom ('raadzaal') at UZA. To reach the room, please follow route 4.
If you register and want to present your own ongoing research: please also indicate the title of your short 15 min
presentation. We will contact you for concrete arrangements later.
