Meet The Talents session
26-03-2015 :: Kempenhaeghe, Sterkselseweg 65, Heeze (Nederland)

Organizer: DSP Valley/Kempenhaeghe

The purpose of the Meet The Talents session is to provide an information and discussion forum for researchers who are involved in innovation projects on epilepsy, sleep and neurocognition. In addition, the strategic cooperation of Kempenhaeghe and the Technical University Eindhoven will be introduced. Our young investigators will present their topics in short elevator pitches in an approachable and comprehensible way. The target audience is company leaders and others interested in innovation. Companies are also invited to give an elevator pitch in order to have the opportunity to show their possible innovations that might help our patients. An on-site visit of the facilities of Kempenhaeghe is possible at the end of the session. Participation in this session is free but registration is obligatory ( --> Symposia en evenementen  --> Meet the talents).
