Introductory meeting on 26 September 2016 for new staff

Leiden University is pleased to welcome its new staff to an introductory meeting on 26 September 2016. In the morning you will hear about the University’s history, its strategic aims and the dilemmas that it currently faces.  Lunch will be followed by a walking tour of the most beautiful University buildings (in the centre of Leiden). At the end of the day, you will not only know more about the University and the city of Leiden, but will have also got to know some of your new colleagues.

What others have to say about the meeting:

"It was good to know that there are so many smart and pleasant people joining LU. Also good to see people being recruited from other sectors (not just uni people), diversity is key to progress."

"It has provided a very nice overview about the 'bigger picture' behind the research strategy of the university. As a scientist I was delighted to hear that fundamental science has its firm place in the latter, and that this is also actively defended and even lobbied for."

The presentations will be held in English.
