Conference 'The benefits of honours programmes for society at large'
- Friday 15 February 2019
- Old Observatory
2311 GPW Leiden
The theme of the conference is ‘The benefits of honours programmes for society at large’. Alderman Paul Dirkse will give a keynote speech about the role of higher education in the city of Leiden. This will be followed-up by workshop sessions, where students and alumni will work together on different societal topics. The day will conclude with pitches by current students on how they see their role in society.
The underlying purpose of the afternoon will be to connect the experiences of alumni and students: calibrating your working experiences in the ‘real world out there’, with the ambitions, hopes and dreams of students.
And of course lots of “gezelligheid" with old and new friends!
