NRS webinar and cafe

Monthly webinars
Get informed by joining our monthly NRS webinars. Every last Thursday of the month, 12:30-13:30 h CEST, we will present a broad view on lung research, as we include junior and senior speakers from various Dutch academic centers presenting their findings and expertise within lung research. The research presented will be of fundamental, translational and clinical origin, in order to reach a wide audience.

Digital NRS cafe
Afterwards (13:30-14:00 h) you can digest all the acquired knowledge by catching up with fellow members at the digital NRS cafe. Pick a table and join the conversation with colleagues and speakers. We will save you a seat. Do not miss out on this great opportunity to get back in touch with your colleagues while expanding your network.

Why webinars?
COVID-19 made it hard to organize and visit live events. That is why we want to give you the opportunity to acquire the latest updates within the lung field in a safe and easily accessible online manner. We encourage  the interaction between researchers in the Netherlands across disciplines, that is why the digital NRS cafe will be opened, so you can meet up with colleagues after the webinar.

We hope to see you there!
