Uit de Ivoren Toren (Beyond the Ivory Tower) is continuing with a new season and a new host. The new host is our Communications and Knowledge Manager, Deborah Sumter. The new season is filled with a wide range of interesting topics relating to sustainability: from urban mining, circular textiles and the effect of COVID-19 on supply chains.
As in previous 2 seasons the episodes are mostly in Dutch. However within this season Deborah will welcome more English speaking researchers from the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Universities as guest.
On March 10 the first episode about the effects of the pandemic on supply chains appeared. In this episode associate professor Rene Kleijn and junior researcher Ankita Singhvi.
On March 24 the second episode appeared. In this episode Ester van der Voet tells us more about the current state of urban mining.
