More information

How do we connect science and practice? This question will be discussed during the symposium on June 6.

The importance of cooperation

We must cooperate more! This statement often comes along, but in practice it often turns out to be recalcitrant to shape interfaculty cooperation well. Because how do you make the time? How do you find the right partner? How do you arrange funding? And to what extent are goals and methods sufficiently shared?

In three mini-congresses from Leiden University we will explore these questions in depth. 

The first conference focuses on interdisciplinary/faculty cooperation within our university.
The second on collaborations between educational institutions
The third on public-public collaborations in the knowledge and public domain

The programme

the plenary part of this symposium will be in Dutch.

14.30-15.00 Walk-in with coffee
