Outreach activities

One of the main goals of ENABLE is to bring science closer to society through a series of educational activities that will be held across the city. During pub talks, a well-tested and appreciated format, young scientists will share their research interests in short talks with the public audience. Moreover, a great variety of outreach activities for adults like Ask the Scientist and an interdisciplinary debate, as well as activities for primary and secondary school students, will foster the interaction between young scientists and the general public to raise awareness around current trends and developments in biomedicine and their impact on healthcare.

Our outreach activities will partially take place on the days prior to the symposium (November 11-12) and will be tailored specifically towards the young and old members of our society.

Activities for the general public

To engage with the general public, we are planning to host a cross-disciplinary debate with experts from different background, an Ask the Scientist event, as well as pub talks where attendees of the symposium will present their work in layman’s terms.

Activities for schools

To also give young students a glance into biomedical research, we will organise visits in local schools in Nijmegen to perform a set of experiments together with the students.

Stay tuned for more details about locations and dates in the next months!
