Xperience Week 2020
8 - 12 June: Five evenings of inspiring sessions
Our scientists look forward to meeting you together with other alumni and relations of the Delft University Fund to showcase the latest developments during our virtual events.
This year we have compiled a fantastic online programme for you. During five evenings from 20:00 to 21.30 hours (CEST), you can delve into our groundbreaking research and become involved in finding solutions for societal issues. Professor Tim van der Hagen, Rector Magnificus and President of the Executive Board, will welcome you and share the vision of Delft University of Technology, followed by a different keynote speaker each day.
Join the session you love the most, or register for each of them!
