The opening of the academic year at the University of Twente will take place on 2 September. Every year the University of Twente organises this event as it is a great way to start a new academic year together with students, scientists, employees and partners.The theme of this edition is about the Butterfly Effect: minor disturbances can cause huge consequences. What looks like a minor invention, may change the world in an unsuspected way. Key note speaker is Cees Links, WI-FI pioneer. Under his responsibility, the first wireless LANs were developed, ultimately becoming household technology integrated into PCs and notebooks.
