Save the date: NCBS


Did you write your Bachelor or Master thesis in 2021 or 2022 and would you like to present it at the National Congress for Biology Students (NCBS), at Burgers' Zoo? Then enroll by sending your thesis to:! The student with the best thesis will receive 'The Darwin Award' and a publication in Bionieuws! 

Out of all the submitted theses, a selection will be made of the best Bachelor and Master students. If you are selected, you may present your thesis (10-15 min) on the podium of the conference room in Burgers' Zoo, in front of a large audience consisting of fellow-students, researchers, teachers and other biology enthusiasts. 

At the end of the night, a jury will determine the winner. The jury consists of renowned biologists from the board of directors, business life, and the academic world. If you were not selected for the podium, you can still present your work on a poster! (In both cases a nice addition to your CV ;)) The audience will vote for the best poster and, of course, the winner receives a prize.

The student with the best thesis will receive 'The Darwin' and a publication in Bionieuws! In the edition after the conference, there will be a page available for describing your thesis, your plans for the future, or for an interview (all is negotiable). Your publication in Bionieuws will be read by the 5300 biologists who are affiliated with the Dutch Institute for Biology (NIBI)!
