Joost de Laat appointed professor in Global Economic Challenges

The Utrecht University Centre for Global Challenges (UGlobe) welcomes Joost de Laat as professor in Global Economic Challenges.

Joost de Laat  will be working for UGlobe and the Utrecht School of Economics. Before joining the Centre for Global Challenges, De Laat worked for, amongst others, the World Bank and the philanthropic organization Porticus. De Laat says he’s excited to join Utrecht University: ‘It provides a unique opportunity to help shape the direction of the Centre for Global Challenges, collaborate with UU colleagues and students across the disciplines on some of today's most pressing issues, and build new bridges between the university and partners (academic and non-academic) in the Netherlands and abroad.’
