Spring Lectures

Every year the Ruusbroec Institute invites several (international) scholars to give a presentation of their research. The goals of these Spring Lectures are twofold:

  • to offer scholars an opportunity to discuss their research, and benefit from the expertise of the Ruusbroec Institute
  • to create an opportunity for the Ruusbroec Institute to keep up with the latest trends in research
