Alumni meeting

Online DEAN Alumni Event France - 30 April 2020

If getting together in-person isn’t possible, let’s meet virtually!
On Thursday, April 30th at 20.00 hrs you are invited to join alumni from both your own city and other parts of France as part of a special online event and borrel for our DEAN communities in the country.

Organised by The Dutch Engineer Alumni Network (DEAN)

Thu 30 April 2020 20:00 to 21:30

The interactive evening programme includes brief updates from the universities, followed by a short talk by TU Delft alumna dr. ir. Nadine Bongaerts who describes herself as a synthetic biologist bridging the world of science with business & society.

Per tradition, our gathering concludes with a virtual borrel (BYOB) where you and fellow alumni living in Paris, Toulouse, Lyon and other parts of France will be mixed with each other to maximize interactions and stimulate conversations! Make sure to also bring some chips or baguette avec fromage.

Stay safe, stay healthy and we hope to see many of you on Thursday.

Short talk: Synthetic biology, the next índustrial revolution

Nadine Bongaerts currently works as post-doctoral researcher on the development of a novel drug screening method to accelerate the discovery of antibiotics against tuberculosis at INSERM in Paris.

During her online talk Nadine will share how synthetic biology is the next ‘industrial revolution’ and provide details about her next job for a start-up developing synthetic foie gras!

Why do Alumni Offices organise this online event?

For alumni who are living outside of their own countries, alumni networks such as DEAN can be extremely useful resources for tapping into fellow alumni for advice and support particularly during crisis periods.

The new online event format has been developed to enhance local connections between alumni and is an addition to the existing channel the LinkedIn Group DEAN France and newly city based WhatsApp Groups.
