Utrecht Summer School presents: Café d’été

Join us for a challenging hour of discussion! Every week, the Utrecht Summer School will organise a challenging activity: Café d'été. A professor from the Utrecht Summer School will kick of the evening with a short introduction to an inspiring dilemma. After this introduction all students are invited to join in on the discussion and express their opinions. In an informal and café-like setting you are invited not only to listen, but to participate actively. Beverages will be served during the discussion. This is an excellent opportunity to think about new subjects and to get to know fellow-students in an informal way.
