International Week Built Environment

From 19 to 21 April 2022 it's International Week! We and our partners provide workshops and lectures on topics related to the built environment. And there are social events. At the time of organizing the International Week we were still dealing with corona measures, that's why this version is still online.

APRIL 19 TO 21, 2022


Dear all,
I would like to welcome you to our fourth International Week. Last year we were unable to organize a physical International Week due to the global pandemic, and unfortunately this year is no different. We will welcome students and colleagues online from around the globe, including the US, Japan, Finland, Belgium, Spain, Germany and, of course, the Netherlands. Although the different time zones create challenges, we hope we’ve developed an interesting program for all of you. Our school and our programs endorse the UN’s sustainable development goals, so the program for International Week includes many topics related to sustainability.

I wish you all a very interesting week with a lot of new knowledge, new contacts and, above all, a lot of fun!

Dean, School of Built Environment
