Public events

To reach out to a broader public, the Lorentz Center organizes (online) public events.

We bring many scientists and scholars to the Netherlands. Of course, the main goal of their visit is to participate in a Lorentz Center workshop, but among these visitors there are also many talented science communicators who are willing to reach out to a broader public.

To enable this, the Lorentz Center organizes (online) public lectures together with with academic institutions and stakeholders outside the academic environment, such as  Rijksmuseum Boerhaave, Leiden University Medical Center, the study association De Leidsche Flesch and Studium Generales throughout the Netherlands, 

Participants of our workshops are regularly invited to give a talk of broader interest in the weekly program 'This week's discoveries' of the faculty of Science of Leiden University.
