Groninger DNA


The University of Groningen wants to involve lots of people in the programme For Infinity. The University of Groningen is the second-oldest surviving university of The Netherlands and the only university in the North. City and surroundings define the university, but this also works the other way around.The university has been contributing to the development of and creating job opportunities in the city and surroundings for 400 years. They provide an always vibrant atmosphere in Groningen. And then there are the over 8,000 university employees, many of whom live in the city with their families. But let’s not forget all the former employees, alumni and, of course, future students! All this put together gives Groningen something special, a very special kind of DNA with a unique appeal. Alumni that have spread around the country and the globe, know that DNA, that never loses its appeal, and carry it with them. Together with Stadjers, inhabitants of the North, alumni, students, (former) employees, guests of national and international fellow institutions, and representatives of government and business industries we are going to celebrate the existence of this DNA in 2014!
