With great pleasure we invite you to celebrate Maastricht University’s (UM) 38th Dies Natalis on Friday 10 January 2014.
The theme of this year’s Dies celebration was inspired by the departure of André Postema. After two terms as Vice-President of Maastricht University, he is taking his leave from UM with a speech called ‘Maastricht University: a love story’.
The Dies celebration will be held in the MECC Maastricht. Rector Magnificus prof.dr. Luc Soete will officially open the ceremony at 15.00. Honorary doctorates will be awarded to five outstanding individuals.
