  • Friday evening 19th May: Network event "Typically Dutch”

Following the scientific program on Friday May 19th a networking evening will be hosted at a stunning location near the congress center. This dinner will take place at the beautiful Wijnfort Lent, to which you will be transported in style. It is a centuries old and historically important defensive fortress which has been transformed into a unique events location. The evening will give you extra opportunities to network with colleagues and meet the Congress faculty. Together you will enjoy an informal yet exquisite dinner with a typically Dutch theme, represented by several fun activities throughout the evening. In addition, the three poster prizes will be awarded during this evening by Sabine Reinfeldt, chair of the poster award committee.


  • Saturday afternoon 20th May: Social program "Enjoy the Netherlands” 

After the scientific part of the congress on Saturday has ended you can bring your take-away-lunch to join our team and further experience the Netherlands at the Hoge Veluwe National Park. This park features a unique combination of art, nature and architecture. The park covers 5500 hectares of woodland, heath, grassland, and drifting sand, and is the natural habitat of deer, mouflon and wild boar. Situated in the park is the renowned Kröller-Müller Museum, which boasts the second-largest Van Gogh collection in the world: almost 90 paintings and over 180 drawings. The museum also has one of the largest sculpture gardens in Europe. A tour guide will take us through the collection of the Museum and we will enjoy a walk guided by a forester of the Hoge Veluwe National Park.
