Sophia Research Day

The Sophia Research day is a yearly symposium devoted to the theme Sophia. The Sophia Research day offers the unique opportunity for young researchers affiliated with this theme to share their research results, broaden their networks, and learn from experienced researchers within as well as outside their field of expertise.

Together we have prepared a scientific and educational program addressing all different research fields within the theme Sophia. By submitting your abstract you can become part of this program!

Keynote speakers

This year we have invited prof. ir. Francine Houben, world renowned Dutch architect, and prof. dr. Francesco Mattace Raso, in-house geriatrician and head division of geriatric medicine, to share their vision on our theme ‘The Circle of Life’, each from their own perspective.
