'Every Connection has a Story'

University of Twente celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2021. Due to COVID-19 we had to postpone lustrum activities to 2022. Our lustrum theme: ‘Every connection has a story.’

2021 was the year we're we couldn't celebrate our anniversary. It was a sober period for all of us. But there was light at the end of the tunnel and we had high hopes on celebrating in 2022 together all of us reconnecting. The theme of the anniversary year was ‘every connection has a story’.
