Radboud Talks – Grande Finale Laatste kaarten

Pitches by young scientists in Dutch and English

De crème de la crème van een nieuwe generatie wetenschappers is 25 maart live bij ons te bewonderen! In korte pitches van drie minuten vertellen jonge onderzoekers van de Radboud Universiteit en het Radboudumc hun verhaal aan jou en een kritische jury. Geen saaie powerpoints, maar bevlogen wetenschappers in hun beste vorm.

Deze tekst gaat verder in het Engels.

On Monday night March 25 the eight finalists of Radboud Talks, coming from different faculties of Radboud University and Radboudumc, will compete for the grand jury prize and the audience award! Besides their pitches, there will be a musical performance by Student Big Band Nijmegen and a literary closing by writer Lisa Weeda from production company De Nieuwe Oost. We hope to see you on March 25th!


Young researchers from Radboud University, Radboudumc and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics participated in two preliminaries. From that eight researchers reached the finals: Simone Lederer (data scientist), Lynn Eekhof (linguist), Rob ter Horst (bioinformatician), Joanna Szopinska-Tokov (microbiologist), Sarah Verhoeff (research physician), Suhas Vijayakumar (neuroscientist), Jeroen Slaats (molecular biologist) and Iris Brummelhuis (research physician).


The Student Big Band Nijmegen plays classics from the Big Band genre, but also more ‘inventive’ music like emerging jazz and fusion. At Radboud Talks they will appear in a smaller but no less exciting ensemble.

Lisa Weeda (1989) writes prose, theater and nonfiction. She makes literary programs for Mooie Woorden in Utrecht and also she teaches at ArtEZ creative writing. In 2016 Lisa published a literary non fiction novel: De benen van Petrovski, about her journey to Ukraine. Lisa is currently working on her novel which will be published at De Bezige Bij.

This programme is mostly in English, but some of the pitches will be in Dutch.
