First off all, we can confirm the dates for the EG 2018, the EG will be held from the 11th until 13th of April. During those days the participants will compete in the Zuiderkerk in Amsterdam, the events main location.

Next to that we are proud to announce that the Amsterdam University Fund (AUF) will be our new partner. The Amsterdam University Fund (Stichting Amsterdams Universiteitsfonds) is a joint initiative of the University of Amsterdam Alumni Association (AUV) and the University of Amsterdam (UvA). They help and support events and initiatives from the UvA. More information on them can be found at auf.nl.
