Science Night 2021

On the 26th of November ASAP is organising the 11th edition of the annual Science Night! 

During this evening we will explore how to survive life. What can we, as dummies, do to become as happy, healthy and as old as we want? How do we maintain healthy while aging? What is the secret of extending our life? What is happiness and how do we get there (if ever!)? To answer these questions, four pioneering scientists will elaborate on subjects of happiness, sleep, nutrition, and longevity and guide us through the recent advancements of these research topics.


Date: November 26

Location: Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heijnkade 179, 1019 HC Amsterdam
