The research team of the Network Institute is fostering more professional and colloquial interactions between all the different scholars of our university working on our digitalizing societies. To do so, we are organizing monthly Research Lunches during which we can hear about each other’s work, provide feedback, and mostly, get to know each other personally. This stimulates more cooperation between all the researchers and departments of the Network Institute.
The organization of the Research Lunches is bottom up, so all NI Members can come up with themes to organize the lunches around. So if you have any ideas, please fill this form.
We always have fascinating projects to hear about, so come join us on our monthly NI Research Lunches every second Thursday of the month! Lunch will be provided.
Registration is required, mostly for planning our catering and room setup. Click here to register the next NI Research Lunches!
