You are cordially invited to the closing symposium of the 2017-2018 UAUCU//UU student research exchange program on April 19th, from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm in the aula of the University of Aruba (UA).

Students from different disciplines will present the – preliminary – findings of the research they conducted in the past months.

From January until April, a group of students of University of Aruba and University College Utrecht have been collaborating in a multidisciplinary research project. The research interests of the students are diverse but show a common interest in sustainable development in small island states. The students will each give a concise engaging presentation on their research and will engage in discussion with the public. The research papers will be made digitally available on the day of the symposium.

The symposium consists of three parts; the first part from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM focuses on economy, enterprise and policy; the second part from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM focuses on environmental sciences and the third part from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM focuses on culture, belonging and resilience.
