About our events
Seminars are open to the public. The speakers are often external speakers with a talk that crosses disciplines. If you wish to get informed about our future seminars, please send an email to Laura Hoekjan.
In the tutorials, one or two iHub members − in their role of expert in a specific discipline (computer science, law, social science, philosophy) − give a tutorial to those interested. The tutorials are tailored closely to the knowledge needs or curiosity questions of fellow iHub-ers.
Brown bag sessions are internal presentations by iHub staff during lunch. The idea of these sessions is to discuss research in an informal setting while enjoying lunch.
