About this event

Meet the top international scientists who have been awarded the Heineken Prizes of 2020 and 2022

During Great Minds Exposed, a FREE two-day live event consisting of multiple inspiring lectures, you will have the opportunity to get a glimpse into the minds of the top international scientists of our time, like Carolyn Bertozzi, who developed a technique that enables immune cells to recognise cancer cells as dangerous and attack them, or Vishva Dixit, who discovered the process of cell death, which has acted as a catalyst for new clinical treatments such as immunotherapy for cancer patients, or Carl Folke, who is at the forefront of influential concepts such as the ecological footprint.

What do their milestones mean for other scientists and for our society? What challenges did they face and what obstacles did they overcome? And what drives them to give their all every day for fundamental science?

Join this event and you will discover the answers to these questions!
