Nuclear Dating | close encounters of the interdisciplinary kind

September 19 - 20, 2019   Brussels (BELGIUM)

Do you enjoy breaking barriers by collaborating across disciplines? Are you eager to explore the broader context of your research? Have you ever heard of “Responsible Research and Innovation”?

Meet, mingle and match with your fellow students and scientists by joining us at a unique “Nuclear Dating“ event!

Dating goals

Research is becoming ever more interdisciplinary. “Nuclear Dating” will twin scientists from different disciplines with the purpose of sharing insights on, and approaches to, research on ionising radiation and nuclear technology. Successful sharing should connect and integrate different perspectives and forms of knowledge, stimulate critical thinking and possibly lead to the development of new projects.

During these  two days you will:

  • receive an introduction to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI);
  • reflect on how your research can benefit from RRI;
  • explore together with other young scientists ways to collaborate with researchers outside your own discipline;
  • imagine a project where collaboration will be of mutual benefit to several disciplines;
  • explore opportunities for joint publications.
