Science Day

More knowledge, better life

iStockOn Wednesday 13 June the very first Maastricht UMC+ Science Day will take place. Under the title 'More knowledge, better life' we will talk with each other about interesting topics in practice and look for opportunities to strengthen the link between scientific research and health care even further. We are working on an inspiring program for every employee of the Maastricht UMC+, for both researchers, clinicians, nurses and supporting staff alike.

Location: Maastricht Randwyck
Date and time: Wednesday 13 June, 08.45 a.m.
The morning program will consist of four plenary sessions. During the lunchbreak there will be an opportunity to get in touch with each other and for poster presentations.
