We are pleased to inform you that Claire Hallewas has been appointed as the new programme manager of the TU Delft | Global Initiative. She will assume the position with effect from 1 June, taking over from Acting Programme Manager Roel Kamerling. We would like to thank Roel for standing in over the last six months and are delighted that he will continue to strengthen the TU Delft | Global Initiative as programme developer.
