Science Meets Business Network Event – Healthy brains for healthy work

Date: 2 December 2022

Welcome: 15:30 hours

Programme: 16:00 – 17:00 hours

Where: online

Healthy Brain links science, business and public partners in the field of brain, cognition, behavior, health and disease. It covers topics like neurotechnology, artificial intelligence, behavioural change and food & cognition.

The Healthy Brain Study was set up to create a resource enabling new collaborations between scientists and private and public partners in the field of Healthy Brain. It enables insight into social, biological and environmental factors that influence for example stress resilience and decision making. With these insights successful tools or interventions can be developed.

In this SMB meeting we will discuss how the Healthy Brain Study resource helps scientists and companies to achieve healthy work. How do people change unhealthy work behavior? How do they adapt sitting patterns and mental work load?

You will also learn how scientists and companies in the field of healthy work can access and exploit the Healthy Brain Study resource. And who you should contact if you wish to get access to this unique resource yourself.

Lucy Overbeek, project manager of the Healthy Brain Study will explain the study resource and it’s potential and availability for science and business.

Erik Bijleveld from the Behavioural Science Insitute of Radboud University will talk about how he uses the Healthy Brain Study resource to study the human mind at work.

Doeschka Anschutz from The Lab of Life will talk about their behaviour change training based on scientific evidence.

And one of the clients from The Lab of Life will explain the effect of the Lab of Life training on the health of their employees.

We will conclude the event with drinks & bites and you will have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the research institute with a tour of the Healthy Brain Study labs.

How to build a successful team?

Date: 24 January 2022

Time: 14:00 – 17:00 hours

Where: Novio Tech Campus, Nijmegen or online

Picking the wrong people and creating the wrong team is the fastest way to kill your startup. But how do you pick the right people and create a team that complements each other? A team that is open, shares lessons and learns together?

After al, success is defined by the people in the company and the way they can cooperate.

Ideally you will have a team that mostly supports the direction your startup is going into, but with a certain amount of courage, a critical view and an ability to discuss the important matters. But mostly a team of people that complements you.

A complementary team starts with knowledge about yourself as a leader or founder. Who am I? What are my qualities? What are my pitfalls? How do I perceive the world?

Trainer Frank Stofmeel is a team and performance coach (see LinkedIn profile) and he will guide you through questions that will help you find out what you need from other people.It will help you to make your team complimentary to accelerate growth and increase results on the long term.

This workshop will be a quest into yourself and will help you find out what you need from other people to complement your character so you know how to build a successful team!
