We are the symposium committee and we organize the yearly symposium together. This a fun day
filled with many interesting readings and interactive workshops about one particular theme.
We choose a new theme every year. Some examples from themes of previous symposiums are the
pharmaceutical industries, the five senses, crime scenes or sex. As you can see, these themes can be
related to biology but they don’t have to be! After this we have to figure out which interesting
speakers we want to invite that fit with our theme and which workshops we want to give. For
instance Dick Swaab once spoke at our symposium.
Organizing the symposium is of course fun, but next to this we also just like to hang out and relax.
For instance we also go on a committee weekend each year and have a beer or sangria together
after our meeting! Are you already enthusiastic? And do you want to combine serious business with
lots of fun? Join the Symposium Committee!
