On 19 and 20 November Ghent University hosted the 10th edition of the U4 Rectors' Conference. The annual Rectors' Conference forms the setting for the yearly evaluation and planning of the U4 strategic partnership.
As in previous editions the four rectors took the occasion to focus on the strategy of the network. At the conference representatives of all academic clusters and working groups take part to report on their activities and to present their aims for the coming year.
The outcome of the meeting is very positive. Not only was 2017 a very productive year in terms of activities. Also within the existing projects the cooperation has been considerably intensified and new forms of cooperation are being explored.
