For Infinity: prof.mr. H.J. Scheltema

27 March 2013

In 2014, the University of Groningen will be four hundred years old. This will be celebrated (15 May - 15 June 2014) with a festive programme, the theme being For Infinity (400). What makes the University what it is today: a teaching and research institute of stature? Which people, ideas and events from the past played a role? One of those certainly not to be forgotten: Prof. H.J. Scheltema (1906-1981).

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.
