Posters edition 2017

The call for scientific abstracts is closed.

About 60 research posters will be presented at the knowledge for growth 2017 conference.

On May 18th, we will organise 6 guided poster walks during which knowledge for growth attendees can visit the posters within a specific theme (see left column), and ask questions to the presenting authors. The poster walks will take place at the Minneplein (1st Floor conference venue) and start at 1:50 PM.
