The last evening of the summer school, we will organize a sparkling gala dinner. Evert van der Werfhorst will challenge the group of scientists with the central question: “Why do you do what you do and what impact will it make?”
Evert van de Werfhorst is an entrepreneur with special interest in transferring science to business. He founded Capilix, a company based on microchip Capillary Electrophoresis technology, and successfully built the company from a scientific idea into a profitable business. He recently sold Capilix to Metrohm, a Swiss multinational, specialized in analytical technology. He is now acting as entrepreneur/investor in IZER, a company he recently founded with his business partner Anna Farrenkopf. They want to play a leading role in the water network in Leeuwarden in transferring the developed know how into business.
