On 17 and 18 November Ghent University hosts the VIth U4 Rectors' Meeting. During the annual symposium the rectors decide upon the strategy and agenda of the coming U4 year. To this end the four academic clusters and the 5th cluster institional management present their work-in-progress and future actions.
Major achievements of the last year have been a.o. the approval and implementation of the U4 DAAD project, the closing of the first cycle of the Academic Leadership programme, the successful Winter School 'Antiquity' in Palermo, and the second blossoming Summer School 'Ageing Brain' in Ghent.
Within the margin of the rectors' meeting several clusters and working groups take the opportunity to meet and discuss further actions.
