DesignLab at the University of Twente is currently a home base for aspiring refugee entrepreneurs. Fourteen young Syrian refugees from a pre-startup school Delitelabs will be at the UT until Friday, working on their business ideas. ‘We encourage local students to come to the DesignLab. You will be surprised at the magic that happens when you put together people of different background,’ says Christof Hawle, Director of Delitelabs.
Studium Generale in cooperation with LA VOZ will hold an event entitled ‘Venezuela in flames‘ (Venezuela in vuur en vlam), on the 8th of May. The goal of this event is to generate awareness about today´s situation in Venezuela, a country dealing with many political, social and economical problems. UT researcher Juan Jauregui-Becker, born and raised in Venezuela, has helped organizing the event.
