Opening academic year 2023

Impact Xperience: What is your impact?


We will festively open the new academic year during the Impact Xperience on Tuesday 29 August! This festival invites you to immerse yourself in the theme ‘impact’. Discover how you can make an impact personally and within the AUAS – on our city, our education and research, society and each other.

Impact Xperience

How does our cooperation boost innovation and promote ideals such as inclusion and equal opportunities? And what difference can you make as an individual? We will look at this through the lens of contemporary themes like sustainability and artificial intelligence. We will also look inward, examining themes like social safety within the AUAS and how we all contribute to it. Being conscious of our impact can inspire and energise us to do our best every day.

Join us to experience the stories, get inspired, co-create something new, share or discover your impact! We will kick off the event together during a plenary session before diving into the Xperience. Visit diverse stands and poster presentations, learn more about ChatGPT, find out how the student assessor and lecturer of the year are making a difference, check out the Wall of Fame, get on the cover of Impact magazine, debate with your colleagues and much more. Do it all at a spectacular location: Muziekgebouw aan het IJ.

We look forward to seeing you there.
