Poster presentations, practical workshops & guided tour

A. National and international funding opportunities, Danielle de Boer (program manager National Science Agenda)
An overview of funding programs is given in a comprehensive way. Which programs are accessible for young researchers? How can writing skills be improved, for funding purposes? This workshop gives hands-on tips for those with the ambition to acquire funding for research & innovation. 

B. Eye of the Master workshop, dr. Annemarie de Witte (The Hague University of Applied Science), AISS Hub

In order to be able to train or teach properly, a teacher/trainer/coach must see what is happening in the lesson. Based on that, the person decides whether he/she should intervene. During this interactive work session, the first results of the research project 'The Eye of the Master' will be presented, eye-trackers will be used to measure observing behaviour, while guiding an exercise activity. We will discuss differences in perceptual skills and how professionals and students can learn to better their perceptual skills.

C. AISS guided tour, a visit to the AISS Hub
Annieck Timmerman (co-director and impact manager AISS)
The Amsterdam Institute of Sport Science network creates, strengthens and catalyzes cooperation between sports practice, healthcare, government, business, and science. AISS effectively develops knowledge and innovations with, by and for practice. AISS brings together the experts and partners who can best contribute to the solution.
