CONGres conference - Breaking Balance

17Jan2018 14:00 - 21:00


The CONGres conference is an annual event, organised by biomedical- and (psycho)biology students of student association CONGO of the University of Amsterdam. This year’s theme will be Breaking Balance.

As described by the organizers:

To make this event a highlight in the academic year we are inviting speakers who can greatly contribute to this conference with their research and knowledge, and we have several other activities planned in which visitors can take part.

This will be the twelfth year that student association CONGO will host this annual conference.

Over the years the conference has grown from a select and small group of visitors to last year’s event with almost 300 visitors. Previous subjects have included ‘’Extremes”, ‘’Undercover Biology’’ and ”Senses”. This twelfth edition will be a great addition to the repertoire of conferences hosted by CONGO.

The conference’s main target audience are our own students at the life sciences faculty of the University of Amsterdam. We will however encourage students and researchers from different faculties and universities to attend our conference to further broaden their view on the most current research.

The lectures will be held in English. Dinner is included for all visitors and speakers.
