Student in the spotlight

One or more students get five minutes on stage in the auditorium to talk about their project or initiative. Inspiring stories, special things that students of the Erasmus University do to realize their ambitions. Projects with social value, students who are an example to others.

Students and staff have been given the opportunity to nominate themselves or others. A jury led by the Rector Magnificus judged the nominations

The Student in the spotlight of this year is: Teodor Cataniciu


Teodor has just finished his bachelor in International Business Administration at Rotterdam School of Management. This Rumanian born student is one of the leading forces behind Restart Network, a refugee coding school based in Rotterdam. Restart Network is a crowdsourced tech school that helps hundreds of refugees – and others – to restart their lives, by learning them how to code and introducing them to the tech industry.
