We started 2022 in a lockdown, while gradually loosening the reigns during the year until everything was almost ‘back to normal’. Our staff and students deserve a big compliment for their resilience in bouncing back from a difficult period. We were happy to be able to organize events in person again and connect with our community. We welcomed many people, young and old, during our Science Park Open Day in the Weekend of Science. And opened our new state-of-the-art building Lab42 where entrepreneurship, research and education come together.
Our focus remains on excellent research and education with our partners, following our tagline “Connecting Science”. Last year we looked at new ways for interfaculty research and interdisciplinary collaborations, often with a link to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
In this 2022 review we share our highlights and present key data for our research. After the summer we will present the developments in education for the academic year 2022-2023. Feel free to forward the reports to colleagues, collaboration partners and stakeholders.
I am proud of all the accomplishments, knowing that they are the result of the joint efforts and commitment of all people in our Faculty.
Peter van Tienderen,
Dean of the Faculty of Science
