Join the LUMC Global Impact in Health Symposium May 30th

Created on:


April 20, 2022

How do we make sure that local research and innovations have real global impact? How can we create an environment that is conducive for interaction between academic, public and private partners here in Leiden, and most importantly, around the world? Only a few questions that will be discussed during the ‘Global Impact in Health’ symposium taking place on Monday the 30th of May from 10:00 – 16:30h. Read more about the symposium below and how you can join!

The Global Impact in Health symposium will officially open the European Life Sciences & Health Week (LSH Week). More information about the LSH Week can be found on the website of the Leiden Bio Science Park. The Global Impact in Health symposium will be organized by LUMC Global and multiple partners. During this hybrid symposium we will discuss the importance of global academic, public and private partnerships in solving the greatest global health threats of our time. We will for instance highlight themes surrounding drug- and vaccine development, cross-sector and cross-border collaborations in health data science. Due to limited space available onsite, we have decided to make it a hybrid event to allow all interested individuals to join!

The symposium is part of Leiden2022 and allows us to showcase all the beautiful work in Life Sciences & Health being done in Leiden. Leiden is internationally recognized as an essential hub for Life Sciences & Health with its large concentration of companies in the Leiden Bio Science Park and several internationally acclaimed research institutes, among which key player the Leiden University Medical Center.
