On October 7th, the NeuroLabNL Startimpulse consortium organizes a matchmaking event between academic researchers, non-academic researchers and societal partners. The goal of this matchmaking event is to further advance collaborations between researchers and societal partners, both within and beyond NeuroLabNL. During an interactive session led by moderator Linda Duits, researchers and societal partners will work towards constructing sustainable partnerships. They will be able to form joint research questions that might lead to future proposals for example for Dutch Science Agenda (NWA) calls. The topic of the matchmaking will be youth education and safety.
