Hundreds of alumni gathered at UM Star Lectures 2023
On Thursday 16 March, the UM Star Lectures 2023 took place. What a wonderful evening it was! Migration, plastic soup, cybersecurity, child obesity, service robots: the programme of this seventh edition was filled with a wide variety of topics, and proved to be another one for the books.
Spread across 14 cities in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, the UK, and for the first time in Switzerland, hundreds of alumni gathered for a lecture by one of our UM stars, to meet each other and strengthen ties with their alma mater. The responses have been nothing but positive: both about the lectures, as well as the networking and catching up afterwards.
The bond with our alumni is very valuable. After all, they are our tentacles in society, our eyes and ears. Like no other, they can tell and advise us about the connection between the education that is taking place at UM and the professional field. Also after graduating, the doors of UM are wide open for its alumni: think of various events, lectures, networking activities, but also lifelong development programmes.
Thank you to all alumni and their guests, for the inspiring evening!
We hope this simultaneous and cross-border series of lectures will give you a sense of pride and connection with your UM and with each other.
