We live in the information age, where 90% of the world’s data has been created in the past several years. Even with all this information being collected, stored and processed, it’s difficult to extract meaning from it all. Treat this meetup as a personal enrichment time rather than just another networking opportunity. New topics, new ideas and inspirations, take-home messages and more! The purpose of ‘’Expand your Horizons’’ sessions is to deliver a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture, often through storytelling. Originally the emphasis was on entrepreneurship and tech, and then broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics. The speakers are given a maximum of 15 minutes to present their ideas, passions, or simply interesting knowledge regardless its shape, flavour, topic, which all of that you wouldn’t find in one place elsewhere - in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. ABOUT THE MEET-UP: • Meeting arena for knowledge sharing. • Creating a ‘knowledge & expertise sharing’ culture. • The aim is to expand what you know by meeting real people with real knowledge. • Ideas flow • Brainstorming
Why? Knowledge sharing engrains your knowledge – nothing helps to deepen your knowledge as effectively as sharing it. It also helps to establish your reputation as an authority.
Our Values: The main values for us are the diversity, learning new & expanding old knowledge, meeting passionate like-minded people, find new ways to see the old and simply enjoy the time with us.
Shape: The meetup is set up in the form of a presentation type event where speakers will first present their content followed by the quick Q&A. Prior to the main session, a short networking session and connecting session will take place (to accommodate latecomers). To sum up the event, an open panel will be hosted in order to discuss and share our opinions.
