The ASAP board 

Science Night 2022

On the 11th of March 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: March 11

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

Price: €25 including dinner and drinks 

Access with ticket and Corona Check App
