Opening Academic Year 2015
On Monday 7 September 2015 Wageningen UR will celebrate the Opening of its Academic Year 2015/2016. This year, the programme will include an address by Professor Louise Fresco, the new Chair of the Executive Board, as well as contributions by students and researchers.
The Opening of the Academic Year will take place in the Orion building in the afternoon, starting at 3.30 pm.
We cannot imagine progress and wellbeing anymore without technology and objects designed and made by humans. A fascinating new category of design is emerging, combining engineering with ecology, biology, genetics and chemistry and insights from the social sciences. We have invited innovative designer and artist Daan Roosegaarde to show us how his work can inspire Wageningen UR (and vice versa!) to explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life. We hope that you will join us to experience his disruptive thinking.
KLV Wageningen Alumni Network
Of course the chair of the KLV Board, Dr. ir. Han Swinkels, will be present this afternoon.
On the website of Wageningen UR you can enjoy a slideshow of some spectacular creations of Daan Roosegaarde.
