Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


Om de andere week worden onderzoekseminaries ingericht waarin doctoraatstudenten en postdoctorale onderzoekers de kans krijgen om hun laatste bevindingen voor te stellen. Zowel interne als externe onderzoekers presenteren het onderzoeksdomein waarin zij actief zijn. Deze seminaries gaan telkens door op maandag tussen 12u30 en 13u30 in de seminariezaal in BioVille, de Life Sciences incubator van onze campus.
