The University of Groningen is celebrating its 400th anniversary. The festivities include the For Infinity exhibition. The exhibition concentrates on the major questions, the 'infinite questions', in academia, such as questions about cognition, development and learning. These were studied in the past by Wilhelmina Bladergroen (1908-1983), and today by linguist Frans Zwarts, a former Rector Magnificus of the University of Groningen.
