The agenda below is continuously updated with upcoming events.

SCT XL - Ewine van Dishoeck: Op zoek naar de bouwstenen voor leven tussen de sterren*
What can we learn from measurements in space? How did life originate, here on Earth and maybe on other planets? Molecular Astrophysics Professor Ewine van Dishoeck from Leiden University, winner of the prestigious Kavli Prize 2018, will discuss this ultimate question during the annual Science Café XL. (language: Dutch)
12:30 - 16:00
De burgemeester: vriend of vijand van de rechtsstaat?*
The powers mayors have at their disposal to deal with public disturbances and combat undermining crime are being extended more and more. Are mayors not getting to be more like crime fighters rather than empathic figureheads dedicated to promoting harmony in their community? (language: Dutch)
