Conferentie 100 jaar laboratoriumonderwijs 'Back to the future' Nederlands
Friday september 30, 10:00 - 15:30 uur

What developments do we recognise in the history of laboratory education? What major issues are currently relevant in the fields of life sciences and chemistry? And what will the lab of the future look like? You can come and discuss the past, present and future with companies, lecturers, researchers and other experts.

100 Years of Laboratory Education
‘100 years ago, Prof. Hijmans van den Bergh started to teach courses for lab assistants to help him during his research in the laboratory’, explains Patrick Cramers, Director of the Institute for Life Sciences & Chemistry. ‘One century on, it has evolved into a solid professional programme from which 400 students graduate each year. There are now 12 of these programmes spread across the entire country, so Utrecht has played a wonderful part in the discipline’s history. Hijmans van den Bergh had probably never expected this kind of expansion, but it just goes to show how relevant the programme is.’

Collaboration at Utrecht Science Park
‘Utrecht Science Park plays a leading role with regard to life sciences and sustainability. For this reason, we feel very much at home at Utrecht Science Park and we hope to continue the collaboration between our USP-based programmes and applied research and our partners in the park over the years to come. It’s great for our education, particularly for our current and future students’, says Cramers.

What can you expect from the conference?
Marion Koopmans, Professor of Virology at Erasmus MC, will address the issues facing the healthcare sector and the importance of laboratory education. Wilma Scholte op Reimer, member of the Executive Board at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, will discuss the knowledge agenda at Utrecht Science Park with Peter Luijten (Vice Dean of UMC Utrecht) and Nico van Meeteren (Director of the Life Sciences & Health Top Sector), among others. Tineke Zweed, member of the Executive Board at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, will discuss safety and sustainability in the laboratory of the future with a variety of experts. And all of the above will be conducted under the enthusiastic chairmanship of Jim Jansen, editor-in-chief of New Scientist!

RIVM: Rioolwateronderzoek voor COVID-19 Nederlands
Tuesday october 4, 15:00 - 15:45 uur
Van de wc naar rioolwatermetingen op het Coronadashboard.

The coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) is unfortunately still among us, which is why RIVM continues to monitor its spread. This is done with sewage surveys, among other things.  

One of the ways to track the spread of the coronavirus is to measure virus particles in our sewage water. This study began on a small scale in 2020 when the virus first appeared in the Netherlands. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) is now analysing sewage water samples from all across the Netherlands, including from nearly all Dutch households (over 17 million people). There, RIVM labs examine whether it contains virus particles of the coronavirus.

Everyone uses the toilet and thus makes an anonymous contribution to the study. Several times a week, samples of the dirty sewage water from all 300-plus sewage treatment plants in the Netherlands are sent to the RIVM laboratory.

What does this involve? What can we learn from it? Can we also detect new variants in sewage water? The analysts from RIVM will guide us through the process of the sewage water study. The results of the analysis are ultimately posted on the Dutch government’s Coronavirus Dashboard so that everyone can see the status of the spread of COVID-19 in the Netherlands, the region or the municipality.

The sewage water study is made possible through collaboration between RIVM and the 21 Dutch water authorities and is conducted on behalf of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.

Utrecht Maakt Kennis - (Proef)dierendag Nederlands
Tuesday october 4, 16:00 - 17:30 uur

Taking place as it does on World Animal Day, this year’s Utrecht Knowledge Event (Utrecht Maakt Kennis) will be all about laboratory animals. Did you know that half a million laboratory animals are used for animal testing in the Netherlands each year? No fewer than 88% of animal studies result in the death of the animals involved. Ouch. What are the reasons for the continued prevalence of animal testing and how realistic is it to expect an end to this practice? A panel discussion between animal welfare campaigner Giel Beelen, Professor Cyrille Krul and a group of Life Sciences students from HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht.

 

Even though cosmetics tests on animals were banned in the EU in 2013, animal testing continues to be widespread, for instance in the pharmaceutical and food industries. Is there no other way? HU students and staff are hard at work on alternative methods that make use of organoids and computer modelling. ‘It has to be done faster and it has to be done differently,’ argues Professor Cyrille Krul, whose research activities focus on the transition toward animal-free innovation. Cyrille will tell us more about what HU is doing in this area and her contributions to a revolutionary new approach. This research is not only taking place within the research group Innovative Testing in Life Sciences & Chemistry, but is also being undertaken by HU students! Recently, a group of Life Sciences students won first prize in the Applied Science Pitch Competition with their pitch on animal-free innovation. They will also be on hand at the Utrecht Knowledge Event to give us an update.

 

Joining them will be animal welfare campaigner and radio maker Giel Beelen. He will talk about what the media can do to call more attention to animal testing and change public opinion. In the past, he has taken part in a ‘pork gala dinner’ to protest against animal testing and handed out the House of Animals Awards, which encourage media figures to pay more attention to animal welfare. Giel has proven himself adept at using the mass media to expose wrongdoing, with a televised stunt that saw him being force-fed by animal rights activists as one of the highlights. How does he feel about animal testing and how could the media help to bring us one step closer to a future without it?

 

In addition, the programme will feature a performance by Utrecht spoken-word artist Tom Strik, who will give a blow-by-blow account of the discussion in the form of word art. The event will be hosted by theatre maker Patrick Nederkoorn and a student programmer for Podium.

RIVM: Big Brown Data Nederlands
Tuesday october 4, 16:00 - 16:45 uur
Rioolwater als graadmeter voor de volksgezondheid

Sewage water may be an indicator of public health in the Netherlands. Many diseases that occur in groups of people can be detected in sewage water through measurable particles or substances. These can include infectious diseases like polio and COVID-19, or non-infectious diseases like diabetes. We can also find substances in sewage water that tell us more about our lifestyle, living conditions and environment.

RIVM has been conducting sewage water research for 30 years. In 1992, RIVM detected the polio virus in our sewage water. Later on, the researchers also examined antibiotics-resistant bacteria and medicine residues, for example to investigate the illegal market for Viagra. The sewage water study is likely to be further expanded in the future. 

Experts from RIVM will take you on a quest for the possibilities of the sewage water study. What is possible, useful and feasible? Does it contribute to existing diagnostics? And finally: is it ethically responsible to search for information in the residue of our faeces and urine?

Developing an implementation timetable for hospital administrators: Join in and help us figure out how to make an impact together.

You are invited to spend a day working on your sustainability issue with all the people you would like to speak to: from healthcare professionals to green alliances, from administrators to health insurers, from industry to pharmaceuticals, from students to waste disposal companies.

As we all know, the process of creating a more sustainable healthcare system is extremely complex; how can we work together effectively to make real progress?

The outcomes of the day's events will be presented to healthcare administrators, along with one central question: how can we implement these ideas in hospitals as soon as possible? A co-production by the Princess Máxima Centre, Utrecht University, UMC Utrecht and Zorgambassade in collaboration with UtrechtInc. Participation is free! Please be aware that the number of places is limited. We will make sure you have everything you need - including food, drinks and a beautiful location - on the day. Just bring your laptop and your sense of enthusiasm: we'll take care of the rest. We expect all participants who register for the event to attend the entire programme.

Prof & Pizza: Wilco Hazeleger Nederlands
Wednesday october 5, 18:00 - 19:00 uur

Wilco Hazeleger is dean of the Faculty of Geosciences and professor of Climate System Science at Utrecht University. While enjoying pizza, he will talk about Utrecht's climate research.

Researchers at Utrecht University take measurements worldwide so they know how the planet is doing. This allows them to calculate which changes have taken place and what that might mean in the future. Models are used to examine the consequences of choices, for climate, people and animals. Moreover, Utrecht's climate research is not unrelated to all kinds of social issues such as energy transition, food systems and urban development. The research into a sustainable future is therefore very wide-ranging and in collaboration with social partners.

The Faculty of Geosciences has the ambition to be a world leader in the field of the earth system and sustainability, with a unique combination of natural and social science expertise. Wilco Hazeleger is closely involved in Open Science and applications of AI and data science in sustainability research.

RIVM: Mentale gezondheid van jongeren Nederlands
Wednesday october 5, 14:00 - 15:30 uur
Een panelgesprek over de mentale gezondheid van studenten, gefaciliteerd door het RIVM

How mentally healthy are students in the Netherlands? What are the different perspectives? And how can we improve mental health? Research by the RIVM and the Trimbos Institute shows that many students experience mental complaints and that this group is growing. Is the pressure from the performance society too great? And can a university or college play a role in this? Researchers from the RIVM and Trimbos Institute will be talking with students, a student psychologist, the chairman of the national student union, the HU student welfare booster, an advocate of student organisations and members of the public. Looking for answers, facts and experiences from students and professionals about mental health. A live conversation interspersed with short presentations of research findings and experiences. Will you be there?

Circular agriculture and resilient food systems

In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that we need a new perspective on food production in order to organise it in a sustainable way. Circular agriculture is a potential approach whose aimed at wasting as little food as possible, for example by feeding ‘rejected’ vegetables to animals instead of harvesting feed specifically for animals. But what do we need to make the transition to circular agriculture? What risks are involved, and how can we anticipate them? What role does animal welfare play in these efforts? We will sit down with scientists and livestock farmers to discuss the question of how this transition can be realised. Discussion led by Rebecca Nordquist, programme in collaboration with Future Food Utrecht. (https://www.uu.nl/en/research/future-food-utrecht)

Complexiteit in de praktijk

Edwin Pos conducts research into how ecosystems work. ‘By combining approaches from multiple disciplines such as ecology and evolution, information theory, physics and maths, I strive to expand the ecological toolkit. This will hopefully enable us to make accurate predictions regarding the dynamics of ecosystems.’ One year ago, on 10 June 2021, Edwin Pos was declared New Scientist Science Talent 2021. This award is an initiative set up by the popular science journal New Scientist and was awarded for the sixth time in 2021. Edwin Pos (b. 1987) studied and obtained his doctorate from Utrecht University. He works in the Ecology and Biodiversity research group as an assistant professor, and since the summer of 2020, he has also served as the scientific director of the Botanical Gardens. In this capacity, he contributes to issues such as area development within Utrecht Science Park. Watch Edwin’s lecture to find out what links the Amazon rainforest, a chessboard and Utrecht Science Park! This lecture will be part of the bring-your-own-lunch-meetings series held in the central pavilion of Utrecht Science Week in his ‘own’ botanical gardens.

HU GEZOND&WEL tijdens bring-your-own-lunch-meeting

Healthcare and welfare are currently under pressure. Professionals are expected to do a growing amount of work in less time. How can we keep healthcare and welfare accessible to the public while reducing health inequalities? Better health outcomes require an integrated approach to healthcare and welfare. We are currently conducting research and learning in an effort to collaborate more effectively. We are working with our partners in the field to promote this interprofessional collaboration between healthcare and welfare as part of the HU GEZOND&WEL programme. This involves a broad outlook on health, which requires both a strong sense of purpose and community as well as a healthy body. The focus is on people: in communities, nursing homes and hospitals. We are focused on the living environment in the broadest sense and the various social settings in which people interact and learn to adopt healthier behaviours. It is here that we can raise awareness of healthier behaviours and reduce health inequalities.
