During the Dutch national “Weekend of Science”, successful matches were made between members of the GUTS consortium and societal partners. Under supervision of professional moderator Linda Duits , participants discussed research questions that were posed by members of the Dutch society. They specifically focussed on how such a research question could be tackled, and which role both academics and practitioners could take. At the end of this meeting, a new research project was proposed on which, amongst others, scientists from the Free University in Amsterdam, the Ministry of Safety and Justice and Youth Penitentiary will cooperate. Also, the current NeuroLabNL Startimpuls consortium was expanded by establishing new connections with the national Dutch research institute TNO and the applied university in Amsterdam.
