Since September 2011, the Beta Breaking Committee has been organizing the Beta Breaks at the Science Park in Amsterdam. The BetaBreak is a monthly discussion platform during lunch in the central hall of the Faculty of Science, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Amsterdam. Every third Wednesday of the month between 12.00 and 13.00 they offer a panel of scientists, business people, politicians and writers the opportunity to discuss a beta-related topic with students. They have set this up to bring the different sciences, which are housed together in one building, into contact with each other.
The BetaBreak is organized by a committee of students.
