Future Rethinkers Congres

The Centre of Expertise Biobased Economy is ten years old. These have been ten eventful years with many highlights and valuable developments. On June 15, the CoE BBE, a collaboration between HZ University of Applied Sciences and Avans University of Applied Sciences, will celebrate the anniversary in Etten-Leur.

This is also a new beginning, as the Centre of Expertise shifts its focus from exclusively biobased to more themes in materials and energy transition. With that, it is also getting a new name, which will be announced during the so-called Future Rethinkers Congress. The theme of the day will be those materials and energy transition.

Helga van Leur

Keynote speaker is Helga van Leur, who is known as a weather woman, meteorologist and expert on climate control and sustainability. There will also be workshops, poster presentations by students and lecturers such as Tanja Moerdijk, Frank Huijben, Jappe de Best and Han van Kasteren will introduce visitors to new innovations. There will also be speeches by CoE BBE director Ralph Simons and Barbara Oomen, chairwoman of the HZ Executive Board, among others.

Of course there is also opportunity for networking. You can register via this website.
