Celebration Week 40 years Maastricht University

From Monday 5 until Saturday 10 September, Maastricht University will celebrate its 40th birthday with a festive week with various activities at several locations. Will you join us in our celebration?

Opening Academic Year
The kick-off  for the Celebration Week will take place on Monday 5 September at the Opening Academic Year 2016/2017. This year’s theme (and also the title of the new Strategic Programme 2017-2021) is: 'Community at the CORE'. CORE stands for Collaborative Open Research Education and is a logical extension of the interdisciplinary approach that lies at the heart of education and research at Maastricht University. The programme includes a morning symposium and the official academic ceremony. Click here for more information.

PechaKucha Anniversary edition
On 7 September 2016, Maastricht University and PechaKucha Maastricht will team up for a special Jubileum event and give the PechaKucha stage to UM staff, students and guest speakers during a festive evening at Sint-Janskerk. Entrance is free. More information:

Pas+ Festival
In 2016, the Parcours of Art & Science (PAS) festival is pulling out all the stops, with a programme filled with activities related to art and knowledge that extends over three evenings, which is why it has been named PAS+. The festival will take place on 8, 9 and 10 September  and will focus on UM’s wide range of research, but also on music, theatre, world music, street theatre, dance, video, arts and cultural heritage. A large part of the programme is bilingual. More information:
