Connect with Industry: Give a TechTalk!

For researchers in Leiden, there is a long tradition of partnering with local Leiden or Dutch companies. These are celebrated across a broad spectrum of relationships, from informal connections, shared studentships and bilateral R&D collaborations to extensive consortia arrangements with complex public/private funding.

Luris would like to continue to provide support to expand these relationships and is looking forward to exploring how such connections can be created or strengthened. One such initiative is the TechTalk programme.

Partners
Together with the Leiden Bio Science Park Foundation, Centre of Expertise Genomics in Leiden Generade, 'Centrum Bioscience en Diagnostiek' (CBD) of the University of Applied Sciences Leiden and LUMC 'Boerhaave Nascholing', we hosted a number of TechTalks - aimed at bringing the research community together, whether based in business or in academia.

Previous TechTalks
Previous TechTalks - themed 'Biomaterials''Blood' and 'Genomics', 'Bug off' & 'Supersized data' - brought together people from more than 30 companies with researchers from across Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center. Interesting new alliances have been the result, showing once again that meeting in person is a stimulating way to trigger new ideas.
 
Preliminary programme 2017
In the following months we are planning two more TechTalks concerning the following themes:


>>Call for speakers<<
We are still looking for speakers for our upcoming TechTalks. We therefore warmly invite researchers who are specialised in one of the aforementioned themes to contact us via events@luris.nl
