Symposium

In the annual Symposium we invite some enthusiastic researchers on a selected topic and we spend a day with various interested presentations, discussions, debates and of course an opportunity to get to talk with our academics in a more informal environment after the event. 

Our Symposium is being increasingly popular! In 2019 we were happy to organise a collaborative symposium with Verum – the student association of Forensic Sciences- on Criminal Minds!

With our symposium about ‘Criminal Minds’ we aimed to connect forensic sciences with cognitive neuroscience, including various disciplines and covering various aspects of the topic; from a biological to a cognitive and sociological approach.  

Our speakers in the Symposium 2019 were:

  • Dr Jorim Tielbeek from the  Vrije University of Amsterdam that talked about neuroscience of anti-social behavior
  • Dr. Athina Vidaki from the University of Rotterdam on forensic epigenetics.
  • Dr. Linda Geven from the University of Amsterdam on wrongful convictions
  • Prof. Dina Siegel-Rozenblit from University of Utrecht on criminology and organised crime

Stay tuned for more information on Symposium 2020!
