Radboud100: joining forces for a better world
In 2023, we celebrate 100 years of Radboud University. One hundred years, in which we have been driven by scientific questions as well as major societal challenges. One hundred years in which we worked towards a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all.
We plan to proceed with this important work for the 100 years to come, because we are committed to making our world an even better place for future generations. That is why we have created Radboud100: a special collective that will be launched in this anniversary year.
Radboud100 brings together people who want to give extra power to future-proof projects and meaningful initiatives, such as research into strengthening dykes with more varied vegetation, or creating grants that allow refugees to study in freedom. And these two projects are only the beginning. Radboud100 aims to make much more possible in the next century. Which is why we cordially invite everyone to join our close-knit network.
Floral dykes that protect us better, also in the future
What type of vegetation creates dykes that better protects us from high water? That is what Eric Visser is investigating. This is clearly no luxury as sea levels continue to rise and the weather becomes more extreme. Eric is investigating which plants can make dykes stronger and more resistant to drought. Plants that are also attractive to insects, thus improving biodiversity. Eric and his team see a future in the colourful strengthening of our dykes. That is why Radboud100 supports his research.
Helping refugees study in freedom
Suppose you’ve had to flee your country and leave everything behind. You also had to stop studying. After a gruelling time of waiting and uncertainty, you are finally allowed to stay in the Netherlands – and then? You are free to study (again). But is that even possible, financially?
Radboud100 offers refugees the chance to study at Radboud University. Without financial worries, allowing them to start building their future right away. With help from Radboud100, they can study in freedom.
