21 to 25 August 2017: Working in the Sun at Ghent University

(12-07-2017) In the week of 21 to 25 August 2017, the ‘garden’ of the central administration building along the Scheldekaai will become an additional workplace. It will be a real open-air office.

There will be tables, chairs, parasols, tents, WiFi, and charging points for laptops, tablets, mobile phones… and, of course, plenty of water, coffee, and tea.

Just like in the previous edition, the open-air office will be a unique opportunity to make new contacts and collaborate across the boundaries of your own faculty, department, office, or academic department.

There will also be guided tours in the new workspaces of the Department of Infrastructure and Facilities Management. These workspaces are entirely laid out according to the principles of ‘Working Differently’.

During this period, you will also have the opportunity to take short fascinating courses on a variety of topics in the neighbouring Ufo. The primary theme will be information management. Highly recommended!
