Want to contribute to new knowledge for optimization of the learning-work environment of the logistics sector?

14 May 2019

On Wednesday 12 June 2019 starting at 12.00 hrs., NWO will organise a matchmaking event in Jaarbeurs MeetUp Utrecht about the NWO call 'Human Capital: Future of Work'. The objective of this call is to gather new knowledge and insight into how working in a concrete learning-work situation in the logistics sector can be optimally designed. More specifically, how an (existing, starting, or developing) learning communities can be designed or adapted to render work-based learning and innovation as a logical part of this. The call also intends to acquire new knowledge and insight into how the setup of a learning community can contribute to the development and adaptability of the (learning) organisation.

The aim of this meeting is to provide information about this new call, to answer questions, and to bring together and connect people who may write and submit a joint proposal. These people include researchers employed at knowledge institutions, partners from the field from the logistics sector and mbo/hbo and/or non-state-funded education. Please note: hbo researchers (such as lectors) may not act as main applicant or co-applicant.

This meeting is mainly aimed at potential applicants and (company) partners who are interested in forming a consortium, and writing a research proposal within the framework of this call. People who have already started forming a consortium and writing a proposal are invited to attend and to learn from the presentations and interactions as well.

Participation is free of charge, registration is mandatory. The matchmaking event will only take place if we reach a minimum of 20 registrations.
