2021 RIKEN-Luxembourg Scientific Symposium

December 15, 2021

Hybrid (partially in-person, and livestreaming via Webex)

The Symposium is organised in the framework of the collaboration between the RIKEN Institute, Luxembourg research institutions and involved collaboration partners. A fundamental element of this collaboration are the so-called joint RIKEN Outpost Labs in Luxembourg where scientists from Japanese research institutes undertake research in the Grand-Duchy and thereby further intensify their collaboration with Luxembourgish partners from the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine of the University of Luxembourg (LCSB) and the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH).
