In order to strengthen cooperation between education and (technical) businesses in the Helmond area, the Technology Table ("Technologietafel") event is organized on a regular basis. This cooperation is important to bring developments and innovations from the business community closer to the world of education. Teachers need up-to-date knowledge, students need to be continuously inspired by the world of technology, and the business world needs well-trained technical personnel. In doing so, an extra impulse can be given to promoting science education and motivating students to choose a technical study. MERLN is supporting this initiative by giving a lecture on regenerative medicine, with a special focus on the work done at our institute. The audience consists of high school students and their teachers from the Dr. Knippenbergcollege. The lecture will be given by Erik Vrij, postdoc in IBE, and takes place in the Elkerliek hospital in Helmond, on November 28, from 15:30 till 17:30.
