Add event:

The Famous Fungi Symposium focusses on fungi that became famous for their enormous impact on our lives, and fungi that may become famous in the future.

This symposium is part of the ‘Westerdijk’-year and will honour the work of the first Dutch female professor, Johanna Westerdijk. She was director of the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute, formerly known as the CBS-KNAW. We will reflect on her famous scientific contributions and discuss the world-changing potential of fungi. We will look back as well as project ahead in order to explore the exciting potential possibilities that will arise in the near future.

The working language will be English.
