Carola Schouten - opening studiejaar HAS Hogeschool

Join us on Monday 9 September for the opening of the new academic year 2019-2020 at 15hr30 at HAS University of Applied Sciences in 's-Hertogenbosch.

The theme is ‘Amazement’. Amazement is the feeling you get when something unexpected happens and that can lead to new insights. These insights are essential to HAS students, to help them find concrete solutions to issues from the sector in which they’ll one day be working. And that’s precisely what this year’s opening event is all about.

This year, we’re delighted to be welcoming a special guest: the Dutch Minister for Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, Carola Schouten. Minister Schouten will use this theme to take us through her vision of a circular agrifood system.

  • What can nature teach us?
  • And can it give us new insights?

Join us, and be amazed!

Please note: The programme will mainly be in Dutch.
