On Thursday, August 25th, 2022, Blaauwberg will celebrate its 25th anniversary! We invite you to join us in a celebration of what we have been doing all those years: producing, disseminating and having fun with knowledge. Sound empirical and analytical knowledge. About the economy, about urban and regional development, about entrepreneurship, about education and healthcare. About empowerment and democracy.
We offer you an entertaining afternoon full of facts, figures and fun around the Masterclass “Leiden and its seven sisters” free of charge and fully in English. We will look at the amazing transformation of Leiden from one of the poorest cities in The Netherlands into a thriving knowledge hub. And we will place this in an international context while comparing Leiden with some comparable European sister cities. What did Leiden well, what can be learned from sister cities elsewhere? The participants of the event will receive a.o. a Blaauwberg syllabus on the topic. This masterclass is part of the greater festival ‘Leiden 2022: European City of Science’.
You will meet people from very different professions and perspectives. Following the masterclass, we will have some drinks and bites. Surely an event that should not be missed!
We have already a lot of registrations but there are still seats available. So do not wait too long and let us know if you want to be part of the celebration! (mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org)
We hope to see you Thursday, August 25th, from 13.00 till 17.00 at the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Leiden, PLNT (Langegracht 70).
The Blaauwberg Team
