Vice-President Education Rob Mudde: "TU Delft attaches great importance to providing the Netherlands with opportunities for lifelong development. We do this through our own Extension School, but we see the new platform universitairdoorleren.nl as a wonderful additional showcase for offering these courses on behalf of all universities in the Netherlands. After all, the major social issues of our time, such as sustainability, health and digitization, require knowledge from all disciplines and lifelong development therefore also requires an offering from all universities together."
