NWO Life2022 will take place on 24 and 25 May 2022 at Hotel Zuiderduin in Egmond aan Zee. We are proud to present our two keynote speakers: Marten Scheffer and Ines Thiele.

Why NWO Life

To connect senior and junior researchers from all different disciplines in the life sciences. To explore and push boundaries. To discuss new or desirable developments in the field. To get inspired by each other’s research and approaches and to start new interdisciplinary collaborations.

The overarching theme for NWO Life2022 is ‘Resilience’. Broadly defined, resilience is the ability to adapt to difficult situations. Resilience relates to all biological scale levels: from cellular resilience – which is influenced by genetic factors – and resilience at the level of individual organisms to resilience of ecosystems.
Moreover, it is currently a literally fitting theme, since society is recovering from the covid pandemic. After last year’s successful online edition, we aim to organise an edition of NWO Life where we can welcome everyone live again at the venue!

What is NWO Life and who is invited?

Researchers at all scientific research institutes including the university medical centres in the Netherlands, in all career phases including master students, are warmly invited to join and contribute to the programme. People working in the industry, policy makers, and lectors and their master students at Universities of Applied Sciences (HBOs) are also invited to join and contribute.
