Intended move of Informatics to the NU building
We are pleased with the next step towards our joint move to the NU building. This was announced yesterday by the university boards and faculty deans.
We consider this to be a significant milestone for both of our departments/institutes and also for academic Amsterdam. The move allows us to coordinate the way in which we address the opportunities and research challenges facing Dutch and International society and it allows us to bundle our resources to offer the best-possible education to our students at the Bachelors, Masters and PhD levels. We still have a way to go before all voices are heard and the decisions are finalized, but we both feel that this announcement highlights an excellent opportunity for the UvA and VU communities. We look forward to helping this process move forward.
