Voorzitter College van Bestuur
In: Uncategorized14 Mar 2012
Just attended the annual “Apeldoorn conference”, held in Manchester this year. The theme of the conference was Higher Education at the Heart of Growth. This was the 11th British-Dutch dialogue conference, where British and Dutch policy makers, University administrators, commentators, politicians and business leaders came together to explore how the Dutch and British are ‘interestingly different’, in the words of co-chair Alexander Rinnooy Kan. A site visit to Manchester University was very informative and we came away with plenty of examples of best practices, opportunities for internationalisation and collaboration. I had the opportunity to address the conference and will attach my speech as soon as I have had a chance to edit it.
