The Radboud Institute for Health Sciences is organizing an Open Day in the Weekend of Science, on Sunday 6 October. We will again open our doors and show our wonderful research to the general public.
Are you in?
Location for the RIHS Open Day is the Studiecentrum.
We need you! Or a colleague from your research group. We know from experience: the more active the visitors can be, the better.
We think of experiments, a tour (look behind the scenes), demonstrations, and mini or children's lectures.
Sign up by sending an email to Postbus open dag RIHS. Questions? Please contact Marie-Louise Roovers.
