Career & Talent Festival

Impuls program postdocs pitch- & matchmaking event

Engineers, medical doctors, life scientists, data scientists, ethicists, socio-economic scientists working together? Convergence breaks down the barriers between disciplines to shape the future of healthcare. Next to brilliant ideas right at the cutting edge of these disciplines, this future also requires brilliant minds to turn these ideas into breakthrough innovations.

Within convergence, we have both!

Full proposals for flagship programs are about to be submitted and reviewed at the very moment that an entire generation of convergence postdocs concludes 17 projects that were initiated within the Impuls program.  

These postdocs excel in their own discipline and they know the ropes when it comes to cross-disciplinary research. Best of all, they are eager to continue to apply their acquired skills in your next research project, your incubator project, and to your out-of-the box ideas and perhaps also in your flagship project.

Come and meet these postdocs at our Convergence Career & Talent Festival, where the postdocs will pitch themselves and where we provide roundtables, a market, and one-on-one matchmaking. 

Find the right match to shape the future of health(care) together.
