Making the Most of Talent

Transfer of Rectorship

The Executive Board requests the pleasure of your presence at the ceremonial Transfer of Rectorship, which will be held on Friday, 15 June 2018. On that day, Professor Huibert Pols will hand over the office of Rector Magnificus to the incoming Rector, Professor Rutger Engels.

The theme of the ceremony is Making the Most of Talent. The university is a unique meeting place for talent. But how do we make the most of all that talent? How do we facilitate our talented students and researchers?

Both Professor Pols and Professor Engels will address this theme. In addition, two guest speakers will share with the audience their individual views on harnessing talent, from the perspectives of education and research, respectively.

Erasmus University has set up the Huibert A.P. Pols Talent Fund as a farewell gift, in order to support young, talented students and researchers. Your gift is very welcome!

We hope to welcome you in the aula on 15 June.
