Happy New Year from the Invisible College Blog!

We wish all the readers of this blog a Happy New Year! For Utrecht University – where I work – 2013 will be an important year. Scheduled for 2013 is in any case the celebration of 300 years of the Treaty of Utrecht, celebrated through an international programme filled with music, theatre, festivals, debates, exhibitions and conferences. Utrecht University will organize an international conference and a Model United Nations. These events will bring together the University and the city as well as staff, students and other interested individuals. So do please all join the party! For more information, go to www.uu.nl/vredevanutrecht.
