For all dinosaur fans 

Dinosaurs On Campus is an evening filled with short and powerful presentations, live music, book signing session and talks with international palaeontologists and dino enthusiasts about fossils and other wondrous animals from the Earth's geological past. If you are keen to talk to palaeontologists about the history of life, or if you have some questions about how to become a palaeontologist? These questions and many more will be happily answered by a strong team of top scientists, journalists and (Belgian) palaeontologists and earth scientists.

This evening will gather plenty of expertise for a fascinating yet light-hearted event, filled with fantastic stories, adventures during fieldwork and common passions. This evening will also exclusively feature 3 book signing sessions by Koen, Melanie & Harald so be sure to arrive on time and bring cash for book purchases. Live music will be brought by 'The harmony orchestra of Etterbeek Community College' in collaboration with the VUB Orchestra. The entire evening will be brought together by our eloquent master of ceremonies: Wim Van Humbeeck. Most presentations will take place in English some will also be in Dutch.

Get ready to be amazed, educated, and transported back in time. This is more than an event; it's a voyage through the epochs that shaped our planet. Unearth the past with us and discover the wonders that await!
