Unlocking New Worlds

Want to know more about Antoni van Leeuwenhoek?


Antoni van Leeuwenhoek

This year is Antoni van Leeuwenhoek year. It was Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek who opened up new worlds with his early microscopes 300 years ago. Following in his footsteps, at TU Delft we are driven to unlock new knowledge and ways of understanding, to look beyond present horizons. On the occasion of our 181st anniversary, at our Dies Natalis in January 2023, we too paid tribute to Antoni van Leeuwenhoek. On this site you will find research and initiatives in his spirit and mentality.
