The official opening of the academic year of the Faculty of Science

The official opening of the academic year of the Faculty of Science of the Universiteit Leiden took place with a 'We are Science' talk show hosted by Paul Wouters in the presence of Marc Koper, Miranda van Eck, Irene Groot, Martina Vijver, Michel Leenders, Ramon Janssen, Hans Toornstra, Ad van Aert, Jasper Knoester, Odette Ex and our own director Ida Haisma. During the opening the starting signal for the second phase of the Gorlaeus building was given under the guidance of Assessor Joost Barendse. We look back on a great opening of the academic year and wish Leiden University good luck with the construction of the second phase of the beautiful Gorlaeus Building!
