International Symposium Diving Medicine, Scott Haldane 40 years
Scott Haldane Foundation Lustrum Symposium
In 2016-2017 we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Scott Haldane Foundation.
Initially a purely local initiative, Scott Haldane International has now become one of the world’s leading institutions in the field of Diving Medicine Education. We obviously cannot let this moment pass unnoticed, therefore, we thought it appropriate to organize a “celebratory” International Symposium on Diving Medicine.
This event will take place in January 2017, more precisely on Saturday, January 21st. The location will be Eindhoven in the southern part of the Netherlands, with its own international airport,close to the Belgium border. The intended audience is composed of Dutch, Belgian and all other certified diving medicine physicians, but also, and probably in greater number, physicians without specific diving medicine education (yet) but a keen interest in diving medicine. Because we know there is an interest, we will also allow and encourage seasoned divers and dive instructors to attend. The official Symposium language will be English.
Evoluon, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
The Evoluon’s distinctive design resembles a UFO that has landed in the middle of Eindhoven. The building was based on an original idea by Frits Philip. The unusual design meant many calculations were needed to make sure the 77-meter concrete dome was properly supported. Concentric rings line the dome like circular balconies and are now used for events.
