Perhaps the best three hours you spend in May

See the programme for the first Interdisciplinary Research Meeting at Health, where professors, associate professors, assistant professors and postdocs get inspiration and knowledge about the faculty's core facilities.


  • Stakladen, Nordre Ringgade 3, 8000 Aarhus C
  • 31 May, 2.30 pm - 5.00 pm
  • You can get an overview of the core facilities at Health here.
  • Register here.

Health's first research day is mainly about core facilities.

It happens that researchers buy, for example, molecular analyses, biostatistical advice, cell cultivation, histology or 3D printing services elsewhere, because they do not know that we at Health have excellent core facilities for precisely that.

Therefore, Wednesday 31 May may very well give you inspiration and knowledge that can make your life as a researcher both easier and cheaper.

You can also hear exciting flash talks and meet colleagues across departments and professional environments over a bite to eat.

The research meeting takes place in Stakladen on 31 May at 14.30-17.00 and is aimed at professors, associate professors, assistant professors and postdocs.

The initiative has been taken by the extended faculty management team, which wants to give established researchers and staff at Health an opportunity to share knowledge and create networks.
