WIAS 25 years!

In 2020 we will celebrate that WIAS formally started as graduate school 25 years ago. We welcome all ideas to celebrate this anniversary together. Please send your ideas to wias@wur.nl.

New PhD study advisors

Recently, WIAS appointed two new study advisors: Myrthe Gilbert and Yvonne Wientjes. They succeed Guido Bosch and Richard Crooijmans for WIAS’ new PhD candidates (NB nothing will change for Richard’s and Guido’s current PhD candidates). We thank Guido and Richard for their efforts and wish Myrthe and Yvonne good luck!

WIAS Lunch Lectures

The WIAS lunch lecture will take place every first Tuesday of the month, except for the lecture of 4 June 2019 which has been cancelled because of the WUR We-Day events that day. The upcoming WIAS lunch lecture will be on Tuesday 2 July 2019 at 12.15 in room A0107 of the Zodiac building.
