We cordially invite you to the 2021 edition of the CAPHRI Research Day on Tuesday 23 November. Our annual event where we can meet, share and learn.

This year's theme is 'A healthy society for everyone'. 
Everyone has the right to good health, adequate health care, a good quality of life, and full participation in society, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, and cultural background. But the health disparities that exist in society show that we’ve still got a long way to go to achieve our vision.

During this Research Day we will explore how our research contributes to ‘A healthy society for everyone’ (CAPHRI’s vision).

Next to that, we will also look at our own workplace. CAPHRI has a diverse employee population. How do we work together given the differences between us? And how can we harvest the full potential of a diverse group​?


  • We are looking forward to meeting you all during interesting plenaries and 12 (!) inspiring workshops......
  • You will have the opportunity to meet our new scientific director Silvia Evers......
  • Klasien Horstman will hold a keynote in which she reflects on the research machinery of categorizing and othering....... 
  • Our PhD representatives have organised a 'Pitch your PhD' session, where 8 PhD candidates have the opportunity to present their research to the CAPHRI community......
  • And of course, we are excited who will win one of the CAPHRI Awards!

Please find the full programme here.

The Research Day will take place at the beautiful Château St. Gerlach in Valkenburg.
