How can our university ensure a maximum impact on society? Who should we collaborate with to achieve this goal? We continuously challenge our students and researchers to look beyond the boundaries of their own disciplines and are looking for new technologies and creative applications.
But what do we need from the government in order to find solutions for ever-growing social challenges?
Join us for a widely talked-about opening of the new academic year on September 5th, starting at 14:15 in the Waaier of the University of Twente.
Preview of the programme:
Keynote speaker during the OAY 2016 is professor José van Dijck, she is president of the Royal Netherlands Academy for Arts and Sciences (KNAW) since last year.
Kovacs will warm us up with her soulful music. Roos Bulthuis and Mark Romme, ATLAS Class of 2016, will inspire the audience by presenting their ‘University of Students’.
The entire programme will be presented in English.
