    Led by professor of exercise physiology Hein Daanen, you can experience what it is like to stand in a climate chamber. In the climate chamber, research is carried out into the thermal management of humans. A temperature of -20 to +60 degrees Celsius can be simulated. It is also possible to adjust the humidity and simulate height by adjusting the oxygen concentration. This allows different climates to be simulated, for example to prepare athletes for the Olympic Games. Hein will also take you to various rooms where research is carried out into movement. Curious? Register here quickly because there is limited space!
