The renewed pay-off 'Sharing science, shaping tomorrow' was the inspiration for this edition's theme 'future'. Predicting the future is difficult, but some things seem inevitable, such as the rise of Artificial Intelligence. We asked two young researchers about their insights into the past, present and future of artificial intelligence. Furthermore, a double interview with two alumni who work together on stress and pressure to succeed among young people. And once again, in the context of the anniversary year, four portraits from the series 'Alumni about tomorrow', about how they see the future and with whom they are working hard on it.

Illuster can be read as an online magazine. Of course you can also download the PDF.

Graduation special

To introduce new alumni to Illuster, there is a special graduation edition of Illuster. You will receive this during your graduation ceremony. Did you read the graduation Illuster and want to read more about the portraits on the back? Then view the Wall of Fame.
