Goals and agenda

Participants to this one day kick-off event will share with each other the inspiringly interconnected research activities within NWA-Bouwstenen, learn more about the progress towards the Dutch Institute for Emergent Phenomena DIEP, and help shape future directions and collaborations within the Route as well as with other NWA and knowledge agenda initiatives.

Morning session: the NWA-Bouwstenen Route
The Community Event’s morning programme opens with an overview of scientific and outreach goals within the consortium and gives an update on running projects.

Focus session DIEP – Dutch Institute for Emergent Phenomena
In the afternoon program, the focus is on one of the three Game Changers within NWA-Bouwstenen. This activity aims to establish a Dutch research community for emergent phenomena to found a Dutch Institute for Emergent Phenomena (DIEP). Two distinguished speakers and three highly enthousiastic pitchers will show us the wealth of research possibilities in the field of emergence.

Round table and discussion on future opportunities
Closing the Community Event’s formal programme is a spirited discussion on what connects the different research activities in NWA-Bouwstenen, and what future opportunities can be explored from our strong basis. Science journalist Martijn van Calmthout will moderate the discussion. This session will position us for an upcoming call for proposals by the Dutch National Research Agenda NWA, which will especially favor cross-collaboration between knowledge agendas such as with other NWA Routes and with Topsector initiatives.
