Farewell Symposium & Lecture Willem van Mechelen
Professor Willem van Mechelen will reach his retirement age in 2017, which implies that his formal position at the Department of Public and Occupational Health will end, although he intends to participate in research at the department for many years to come.
To celebrate this transition, we have organised a Farewell symposium focusing on the past, present, and future of his research area.
The symposium will take place in the Main hall of the VU University Amsterdam, on September 8th 2017 (9:30 -15:00), directly followed by Willem’s farewell lecture. Participants are kindly invited to toast after this lecture to Willem’s future (17:00 – 18:00).
