Following the recent Discover the W100 event in Amsterdam, we are pleased to announce two new additions to the network; Utrecht University and University of Groningen have joined at research level and are our first Dutch members. We are delighted to welcome such respected and highly ranked Universities to the ever growing network.

Ludo Koks, Director of Communications and Marketing, Utrecht University commented:

High quality reputation plays a crucial part in meeting ambitious goals. It is truly inspiring to share thoughts and thoroughly discuss, explore and evaluate ways to help foster reputation within this network.

Professor Sibrand Poppema, President, University of Groningen said:

“In the coming years we want to transform from an international university into a global research university. This Network will surely help us to fulfil our ambitions.”

Membership now comprises 45 world-class institutions from 17 countries in all continents. This international diversity is one of the reasons our members find the network so valuable.
