Events

We see our public events as an important part of our research process. We can reflect on our projects and together with our partners we are actively seeking a dialogue with visitors. Our events are mainly taking place at the historic Waag building in Amsterdam, but regularly at other national and international locations too. The overview below also mentions the events that we contribute to.
