  • (Updated) 1 November 2016, Future and Emerging Technologies (FET-open) workshop

    Date & Time: Tuesday 1 November 2016, 15:00-17:00
    Location: Science Park 904, Amsterdam

    FET-open are visionary projects, to develop a radically new technology. In FET-open a consortium of partners from different scientific disciplines are working together to achieve this. The choice of subject in a FET-open proposal is free, and therefore it is a very popular part of the EU program Horizon 2020.

    However, a considerable number of proposals are not (fully) in line with the most important demands and conditions of the FET-open programme. The IXA UvA-HvA Grant Support team and the FNWI Projectmanagement team are therefore organizing this workshop, in which the FET-open conditions will be layed out clearly. The workshop will address the keyfactors for a successful FET-open proposal, experiences form evaluations, and furthermore the lay-out of a good project proposal.

  • 17 - 19 November 2016, The Logical Structure of Correlated Information Change

    Date: 17 - 19 November 2016
    Location: Nina van Leerzaal, Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam
    Deadline: Tuesday 1 November 2016

    This workshop is entirely devoted to the LogiCIC Research Project on “The Logical Structure of Correlated Information Change”. In this interdisciplinary project we focus in particular on correlations that arise in situations in which the very act of learning new information may directly change the reality that is being learnt. We will combine insights and techniques from a range of research domains, including logic, game theory, philosophy of science, network theory, quantum theory, belief revision theory, truth approximation and formal learning theory.
