Official launch of the Institute for Health Systems Science

07 november 2023 11:00 t/m 17:00 - Locatie: Theater De Veste | Zet in mijn agenda

After months of smaller events, lots of networking, and building momentum for Health & Care at TPM, we are now ready to officially launch the Institute for Health Systems Science.

Are you curious about the activities and plans of the faculty of TPM for the Health & Care domain? Would you like to know more about how we went from individual research projects in Health to an Institute? Do you wonder what this could mean for you and how you can become a part of this community? Then please join us at the launch of the Institute for Health Systems Science (IHSS)!

We welcome everyone who is invested in or simply curious about Health & Care and the research and education we do at TPM and TU Delft. Following our keynote external speaker, Prof.dr. Stefan Sleijfer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Erasmus MC, attendants will be able to listen to inspirational talks showcasing our research and education, join workshops and brainstorms to create a vision for the future, and explore new ways of collaboration. The event is a great way to join future efforts within IHSS.

Timings: 11am-5pm, including lunch

Location: Theater De Veste
