Copenhagen, Denmark - September 10th 2019

We would like to invite you to attend a special alumni event on September 10th 2019, hosted at the UNICEF Supply Division warehouse in Copenhagen which, at over 20,000 square meters (the equivalent of three football pitches), is the largest humanitarian facility of its type in the world. Join local UT alumnus Pieter Verhoog (BIT’06) who as a Supply Chain Data Analyst at the warehouse will provide insight on both the latest technology installed as well as the life critical mission of this important IGO.

During this event you will also have a chance to hear updates from the Dutch technical universities, as well as enjoy a ‘borrel’ mixer with fellow alumni – a great way to start accessing our shared ‘DEAN’ Nordic network of 4000+ local graduates including over 600 in Copenhagen!

An optional guided tour of the warehouse will take place from 14:00 till 15:30hr - only 25 spots are available so if you’re interested please make sure to select this option on the registration form (view these videos for a preview of the facility from outside and inside).

Oslo, Norway - September 11th 2019

Urban Farming is a growing phenomenon in a world increasingly concerned about sustainability and eco-friendly food sourcing. During a special DEAN event in Oslo on Wednesday 11 September you are invited to join a presentation by a TU alumnus who is the co-founder of a local start-up active in this area.

UT alumnus Dirk-Jan van Lubek (EL’00) is the CTO of BySpire which since 2015 has aspired to become Norway’s largest company for the vertical cultivation of food – the journey so far has included setting up a 100 square meter plant in the outskirts of Oslo, being a 2018 national finalist in the Nordic Startup Awards, and recently switching the business focus to that of a solution provider. During his talk Dirk-Jan will share the inspiration and vision behind BySpire along with the realities and challenges of being an entrepreneur in Norway.

The evening programme will also include updates from both Delft and the other Dutch technical universities, as well as a 'borrel' mixer with fellow alumni – a great way to start accessing our shared ‘DEAN*’ Nordic network of 4,000+ local graduates including nearly 500 in Oslo!

Location: Cafe Amsterdam, Kristian Augusts Gate 12, Oslo 0164, Norway
