WUR considers its connection with the city of Wageningen and its residents extremely important and is eager to show how everyone deals with the themes being researched and developed in Wageningen during everyday lives. Besides, CineScience movie talks are a unique opportunity for scientists and society to discuss topics that matter.
In collaboration with the Heerenstraat Theatre in Wageningen, we host the CineScience movie talks. Every month, scientists exchange the academic arena for the cinema with screenings of films and documentaries that they have personally selected. The researchers clearly highlight the scientific content as well as their passion for the topic in a way that is accessible for those who are not scientists.
Due to the corona measures, we had to end our 2019-2020 program early. We will be working on the 2020-2021 program over the summer and will try to schedule the cancelled movies in the new program. The Heerenstraat Theatre follows all corona-related regulations and advises of the Dutch government, the program is therefore subjected to change.
