Programme update: bring-your-own-lunch meeting series

From Monday through Friday, there will be a daily bring-your-own-lunch meeting during Utrecht Science Week! As diverse as Utrecht Science Park’s ‘residents’ are, so too are the topics you can explore during the lunch break in the pavilion in the Botanical Gardens. Come join us! Admission is free (but be sure to register beforehand).

On Monday 3 October, we’ll start things off with the topic Humans and animals: healthy and sustainable coexistence.
Debbie Jaarsma will lead a discussion with Lidwien Smit and Franck Meijboom.
From 12:30 to 13:30.

On Tuesday 4 October, we’ll focus on the question: ‘Plant-based nutrition, the new standard in healthcare?’.
Arte Groenewegen and Jopke Janmaat, founders of the successful student collective ‘de CO₂-assistent’, with speak with guests including Myrthe Frissen.
From 12:00 to 13:00.

On Wednesday 5 October, you’ll hear all about the First Generation Fund from founder Charisma Hehakaya. What are the challenges that pioneering first-generation students face, and how can you help?
From 12:00 to 13:00.

On Thursday 6 October, we’ll take a closer look at green chemistry: Bert Weckhuysen will discuss the question: ‘From which carbon source will we make our products of the future?’.
From 12:00 to 14:00.

On Friday 7 October, we’ll conclude the series with HU GEZOND&WEL: Lizet van Ewijk: ‘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.’
From 12:00 to 13:00.
