The highest point of the JRCZ at Het Groene Woud in Middelburg was reached on Monday afternoon. Deputy Harry van der Maas, Dean of UCR Prof. dr. Bert van den Brink and students from Scalda, HZ University of Applied Sciences and University College Roosevelt laid the last plate on the roof of the research center on a sunny autumn afternoon in Zeeland. The festive moment had to be celebrated in a small group, due to the current corona measures in place.
Joint Research Center Zeeland
Construction of the JRCZ began in February of this year, and is expected to be completed in September 2022, just in time for the 2022-2023 academic year. Students, teachers and researchers from Scalda, HZ and UCR will then be able to work together in the center on issues in the field of water, food, energy: topics that are relevant to delta areas such as Zeeland. The JRCZ is part of Campus Zeeland and is intended to boost higher and scientific education in the province, and thus making the region even more attractive for students and researchers.
