On 7 February 2019, the leading event for Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in the Netherlands will take place: Synergy conference 2019. Keynote speakers, experts, young talents will debate with each other and you about the value and impact of the entire field of SSH research.
From a 360-degree perspective, different angles on topics impacting the SSH disciplines will be debated. In short: THINK360!
Digitalisation One of the conference topics is the impact of digitalisation on science and on our everyday lives. For example, how do big data and artificial intelligence influence SSH research? How does science benefit from the digitalisation of sources? What do robotisation and virtual reality mean for society?

Registration is free of charge for anyone working in the Netherlands in SSH research: from PhDs and postdocs to professors. Directors, policy makers and professionals from civil society organisations involved in SSH research are also warmly invited to register.
