Saving the World Trade Organization

Nov 16, New York

Prof. Jan Wouters, world renowned expert on international law and international organizations gave an insight in the European Union's proposals to save the WTO. His views on global trade and the current political climate drew a lot of attention of our alumni. This event was organized in collaboration with Belcham. 


Sep 24 - Tir Na Nog, Philadelphia

For the first time, the Chapter organized a get together in the city of Philadelphia. Of course we chose a beer place: Tir Na Nog. This Irish pub bears the same name as a pub that was for a long time at the Ladeuzeplein in Leuven, some of you might still remember. What better place in Philly to start our networking there!

Lemaitre revisited!

Georges Lemaitre has been on this spot before. But we had him come back: the IAU, International Astronomical Union, has voted to rename Hubble's Law into the Hubble-Lemaitre Law, to recognize his work on the Big Bang Theory (no, not the series). Lemaitre 'discovered' the big bang concept as he was the first to utilize Einstein's theory to the cosmos.
