This year, Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht are celebrating 385 years of science in Utrecht. The theme of this lustrum: Creating tomorrow together. Sounds logical, doesn't it? After all, we can only achieve a better world by joining forces. And our alumni turn out to be particularly good at this. In this lustrum year we will be talking to a number of alumni about how they see the future and with whom they are working extremely hard to reach a better tomorrow.
