We are passionate about the organization of Nerdland Festival and the Battle of the Scientists and would love to also take your event to heart.
Your research day
Every year it is that time again: the PhD or research day. An event with excellent goals but with a, let’s face it, sleep-inducing effect. It is a missed opportunity that takes a lot of time, money and preparation. Is there an alternative, so that your PhD day is no longer in the line of ‘Argh, time lost again’? Yes!
We create a research day in which interaction and inspiration are central, with a pinch of Nerdland Festival atmosphere, both online, on location and in hybrid form. Curious what it might look like?
Toon Verlinden founded the largest outdoor science festival in Belgium in 2017, together with Hetty Helsmoortel. In 2021 Sound of Science and Nerdland joined forces and became one big festival. The place to be for nerds, geeks, and their friends and family. Think booths, music, a terrific atmosphere, and an impressive load of science.
The Battle of the Scientists
Hans Van de Water started the Battle of the Scientists in 2015, a thrilling show where researchers present their work to primary school children. The children give feedback and vote for the best presentation. The Battle of the Scientists is established in English, Dutch (Wetenschapsbattle) and French (Choc des Scientifiques).
What we can do for you
A network of speakers
Thanks to our own workshops and events, we are in constant contact with experts from various fields of science and innovation. We closely follow current trends and know who speaks with passion. Are you looking for a speaker, activity or workshop? We would love to help you brainstorm and connect you to established personalities or up-and-coming talent.
Out of the box event formulas
Do you shudder at boring scientific conferences? Are you looking for a fresh new take on your event? We are happy to help you work out an entirely new concept or novel approach. Innovation can often be found in small things that are not expensive or complex at all.
