Annual review 2014

17 December 2014

What did the University put into and get out of 2014? We are delighted to present a number of highlights. Although we cannot show everything, here is a selection of what went on at the University in 2014, a year dominated by activities celebrating its 400th anniversary. The RUG-400 commemorative volume available in the University Shop, looks back on a very special year.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
