In 2016 the University of Warsaw celebrates its 200th anniversary. Many events have been prepared on this occasion. One of them is the UW Alumni World Reunion.
Plenty of scientific lectures, exhibitions, concerts and other meetings take place at the University of Warsaw due to 200th birthday of the University. Information about them are available on jubilee website.
From 13th May to 14th May the UW Alumni World Reunion will be held. In the program of that event are:
Conference “I am from the UW” – in TED Talk format
We will meet the most interesting, multidimensional UW individualities: lecturers, students and alumni, who are not that well known to the general public. We want to show the diversity and distinctiveness of their achievements, interests, and personalities. The conference will be hosted by journalists, artists, writers, and businessmen – all UW alumni.
