Knowledge 2 Connect

Knowledge 2 Connect is an initiative organized by the Knowledge Centre for Health Ghent. Every year the knowledge centre organizes five Knowledge 2 Connect meetings aimed at supporting researchers. The focus is based on providing customized information and exchanging best practices. The seminars are practice oriented and tailored to researchers who perform research in the area of medicine and health.

Practical information

All seminars will be organized in a hybrid way unless online meetings are preferred/obliged due to COVID-19 measures. Researchers can join at Ghent University Hospital or online (via MS Teams). Registration is necessary for each seminar, via the link mentioned below. A few days before the seminar, you will receive the final practical information (e.g. a Microsoft Teams link to participate).

CME credits / Doctoral Schools

Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits (i.e. ‘accreditatie’) has been requested for all Knowledge 2 Connect meetings (section 6 ‘Ethics and Economics’). The Knowledge 2 Connect program is part of the Transferable Skills programme (Cluster Research & Valorisation) of the Doctoral Schools of Life Sciences and Medicine.
