Drug abuse. It’s still a taboo subject, which means that it’s not something people are very willing to talk about. And in the opinion of scientist Alexander van Nuijs, if people don’t speak up, then you have to let the street –or even better- the sewer do the talking. A single sample from an Antwerp sewer says more than a thousand wild party stories: Antwerp is the cocaine capital of Europe. Thanks to the University of Antwerp and the National Geographic Channel, you can spend an evening in a sewer where you will discover all the secrets of the wild nightlife in major European cities, including Antwerp and Amsterdam.
The University of Antwerp and the National Geographic Channel will take you behind the scenes of groundbreaking research. Literally. Take a look with us at a Van Gogh painting and discover: a second Van Gogh. Descend into the sewers of Antwerp, Amsterdam and Brussels and see how inhabitants’ drug abuse is exposed. Discover the potential role of gold and the world’s most powerful microscope in the fight against cancer. Explore new routes that the transport sector can travel down and find out if woodchips can save the world.
The University of Antwerp wants to pass on knowledge to all its students. This is its job, which it does with passion. A second passion, that is at least every bit as great as the first is to produce knowledge.
This is why the University of Antwerp takes part in groundbreaking research. Research that saves lives and perhaps even the world as well. Would you like to be part of this passionate university? Then sign up for one of our courses and before long you will be producing knowledge with the University of Antwerp.
