Valentina Mazzucato gives lecture at the kick-off conference launching Maastricht University’s 2018-19 Honour’s Plus program on the necessity of interdisciplinary research to understand global issues such as migration.
On October 30th, 2018, EDLAB hosted a kick-off event for the 4th edition of Honours+. This year, more than 140 students, supervisors and faculty coordinators were present to festively kick off the programme together. Prof Valentina Mazzucato gave an inspiring lecture about ‘Transnational migrant families from an interdisciplinary perspective’, which clearly indicated the importance of tackling and formulating research questions with a multi-disciplinary approach. After the lecture, students participated in a pub-quiz and were able to get to know their fellow Honours+ students a bit better.
