The Future of Education

  • CIC Rotterdam 45 Stationsplein Rotterdam, ZH, 3013 AK Netherlands (map)


Are universities still needed today? What about tomorrow? Or are they needed more than ever? How? And what are the skills that you need to master tomorrow?

On Thursday December 14th CIC’s own Launchtime Podcast (Nick Kiran & Lorenzo van Galen) will be organizing a live edition during Venture Café in Kriterion (Groothandelsgebouw Rotterdam). This edition will focus on the future of education and will consist of a panel with two amazing speakers; Prof. dr. Bob de Wit (Nyenrode Business Universiteit) and Teodor Cătăniciu (Restart Network) - info below.

About the speakers

Prof. dr. Bob de Wit (Nyenrode Business Universiteit)

Prof. Dr. Bob de Wit is Professor of Strategic Leadership at Nyenrode Business Universiteit and Co-Director of the Center for Strategy. He has (co-) authored 18 books, 49 articles and chapters in books, and 18 cases and teaching notes in the area of strategic management.

Teodor Cătăniciu (Restart Network)

Teodor is Chairman & Founder at a non-profit called Restart Network. They believe that the son or daughter of a billionaire, and the son or daughter of a Syrian refugee, should have access to the same world-class education. With a tuition-free one year long program they empower refugees, people from low-income and minority backgrounds to start a new life through a career in the tech industry.
