About this Event

Mens Sana in Corpore Sano 4.0.

We have reached the point where we can hack human beings thanks to advances in machine learning, AI, neurosciences, etc. At the same time, stress is the number one cause of long-term sickness absence , and a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death. Isn’t it about time that we put scientific and technological progress at the service of the promotion of well-being and health in organizations?

AMS and Melexis are proud to announce the appointment of Dr. Steven Poelmans as the world’s first Chair in Neuroscience- & Technology-enabled High Performance Organizations and Professor of Neuroscience & Strategic Leadership. This supports our longstanding commitment to ‘opening minds to impact the world’.

In his inaugural address ‘Mens Sana in Corpore Sano 4.0.’ Prof. Dr. Poelmans will give us his perspective on how the brain will become a priority both inside and outside organizations.
