Millions of euros of public funding go into exploring the great frontier of cognition, yet most scientists never translate their research to the society that has made their work possible. Cognitalks is built on the notion that scientists must do better in communicating their groundbreaking research to society. For this reason, once a year we invite some of the most exciting and inspiring cognitive (neuro)scientists to share their latest research with the general public in bite sized 20-minute presentations.
This year we have four great speakers from the University of Amsterdam, the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, and the University of Utrecht covering topics from morbid curiosity to decision making in neuroscience. After the talks are over, you will also have the chance to unwind and meet the speakers for a drink in an informal and relaxed setting.
The program will start at 20:00 and the doors open at 19:30.
Last year’s edition was a popular event, so rather register early if you want to get a spot. Stay tuned for the speakers of CogniTalks 2020!
