The Romania Luxemburg Business Forum Asbl (Romlux) has announced the event "Investing in Art & the Art of Investing", taking place on 9 April 2019 at the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.

The event, which forms part of the Romanian Entrepreneurs Network (REN), is dedicated to art, financial investments and neuroscience- and the link between them. On this occasion, guest speaker Prof Dr. Jan de Maere will unveil the secrets of the emotional impact generated by art and share the physiology behind the excitement that provokes a masterpiece. The event will similarly present the entrepreneurial link that exists between Jan de Maere and Romania, in particular Transylvania.
