Did you know that in Ghent, March is also known as the North-South month? It is the month of Belmundo, a series of activities that promotes international solidarity. The theme of Belmundo 2016 is ‘water’, so the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering is an obvious partner, co-organizing one of the four headline activities, the Belmundo Water Talks, on Wednesday 23 March 2016, in the Vooruit arts centre in Ghent. We do however also expect you to contribute!
CES&T invites all its members to its Speed Networking event on 14th of March, 2016, in order to get to know each other better and what everyone does.

This will significantly broaden your network and might result in potential collaborations. A reception afterwards will provide time for further networking.
