What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
December is traditionally a month to reflect on the past year; it’s also a great moment to look forward. For this reason, we are organizing “A Year in IR in Amsterdam” in December. Together, we look back on our achievements, in terms of research, innovation, and product output, but also on where we are heading next year.
We invited 8 speakers from the Amsterdam IR ecosystem, 4 academic speakers and 4 speakers from industry, to talk about their achievements this year.
This will be a hybrid event, the in-person event will take place at Science park 904, room C0.110. We will have drinks and snacks after the event.
IMPORTANT: You will be able to view the Zoom link to join online once you 'attend' the meetup on this page.
