Wat we doen
We are a network of international staff at VU Amsterdam and we welcome PhD students, postdocs, administrators and faculty to join us. We hope it will become a useful resource for answering questions and sharing experiences, both about professional life at VU Amsterdam and also more generally within the Netherlands. We will also be organizing a variety of activities throughout the year, so please stay tuned!
As member of the network, you also get access to the Global Room (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCN7vk4SA8A), situated in the Main Building room 1A-36. You can enter the room with your VU pass, once you have filled out this (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1D-5JmAI75DdNHtvfM20EYtwGzkDw-2R9BeQfn9wzk9Y/edit) form (the authorization is activated uploading it via the SALTO lock at your department or at the security in the main muilding).
The Global Room is available for hosting events including workshops, information sessions, presentations, small social gatherings and network sessions targeting an international audience. The Global Room also serves as landing spot for internationals to informally meet or work.
As you can see in this app group, several people organize events already. Please feel free to initiate events or meetups yourself. And if you want to exchange ideas, do not hesitate to contact the network through email@example.com .
