Science Beyond The Lab: Startups - 30 November 2017

30 November 2017 ·


Next 30th November, CEBE is organising a colloquium where three persons working for a start-up developed around a scientific topic will talk about their roles and experiences, and how they transitioned from the lab to their current positions.

Following the colloquium, we will open a discussion time when the public will have the chance to ask the speakers more in detail about their experience, day to day work, their concerns or any other related question.

The event will take place in the Embassy of Spain in Brussels (Rue de la Science 19) at 19h00, it will be in English. There will be a reception at the end.

This event is in collaboration with the Consejería Cultural y Científica de la Embajada de España en Bélgica (SPAIN Arts, Science & Culture).
