Online | Opening Academic Year

8 September 2020

You’re invited for the opening of the Academic Year 2020 on September 10, from 16.30 – 17.30. Hosted by: AMS Institute, moderation: Anna Gimbrère.

During the event we will be exploring new horizons, by connecting science to societal challenges, by creating impact for the city. We will also explore different perspectives on the topics of creating a circular economy, future proof assets and innovative entrepreneurial activities.

We hope you will join us at this special event to kick-off the new academic year. This year’s event also marks the celebrative handover between Scientific Directors Arjan van Timmeren and Eveline van Leeuwen. We hope to share this moment with all friends of AMS Institute.

Registration is required. Please register for the event here.
