Research Events


The R&D-department offers you, in close cooperation with the VUB-branch of the Jonge Academie, a monthly opportunity to take part in this interdisciplinary meeting ground under the title Food for Thought. For each edition, a theme will be chosen that is not only interesting for diverging disciplines but that also forms a common global challenge. Next to the two theme tables, each edition will have a policy table where you, as researcher can directly and actively take part in the facilitation of interdisciplinary research with the VUB's research policy makers. 

This April edition is themed "Work-Life Balance for ZAP". During the second semester of academic year 2014-2015 all members of the ZAP of the VUB received an invitation to partake in a research project on workload and content. The research combined a survey questioning with a seven-day diary registration. Prof. Ignace Glorieux will share a short presentation on the outcome of this research and VUB HR Manager Jan Den haese will talk about the practical implications of this outcome.

Registration is mandatory and places are limited.
