Alumnibijeenkomst

Alumni event - Prague, Czech Republic - April 3 2019

The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, together with the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague and Wageningen Alumni Network Czech Republic, organised a knowledge session and Second Wageningen Alumni Reception on 3 April 2019 from 15:45 onwards at the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague.

Last year, we met on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Wageningen University &  Research. This year, we combined a reception with a knowledge session at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague that was attended also by students. The topic of the knowledge session was ‘How to feed the world in 2050’.

After presentations from the three key-note speakers, a question and answer session and reception followed. You can find the programme for this day below.

The knowledge session took place at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague, E III.

About 100 students attended this knowledge session.
