University Fund Wageningen has the pleasure to inform all WUR alumni living in Norway about an alumni meeting for the 4TU, the Dutch Engineers Alumni Network Trondheim in Norway.

Organised by University Fund Wageningen

Tue 5 September 2017 17:00 to 19:30

Venue Den Gode Nabo (Øvre Bakklandet 66, Trondheim

This activity kicks off "rett etter jobb", so at 17:00 hrs, at Den Gode Nabo. We provide finger food with the first round of drinks covered by the alumni offices in Delft, Eindhoven, Twente, and Wageningen!

At 17:30 hrs, Erwin Hans, Professor Operations Management in Healthcare at the UT, will give a brief presentation about his work. After that, participants will be offered an open mic (with or without presentation) to share in 5-minute pitches what they do in Trondheim (or surroundings). After that, we may move outside depending on which of the four seasons Trondheim is experiencing that day.


17:00-17:30 Introductions

17:30-18:00 Presentation by Erwin Hans, ‘Are you doing any better, Doctor?’ 

The quality of care in the Netherlands is one of the highest in the world, but on the other hand involves far too large expenditures doubling every decade. Increasing life expectancy is causing a double "gray pressure". If we want to maintain the high quality of care, something has to change: care processes need to be organized more efficiently.

18:00-18:30 Open mic pitches

18:30-19:30 Networking & drinks
