During her state visit to Luxembourg, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands will come to Campus Limpertsberg on Thursday 22 March and attend a round table discussion dealing with “Europe after the crisis”.

Furthermore, she will visit the LCSB on Campus Belval.

It is the first time the Dutch Queen will visit the Grand Duchy since Grand Duke Henri acceded as Grand Duke of Luxembourg in 2000. The 74-year-old monarch will not be accompanied by her son Willem-Alexander, as he has other engagements.

The University is proud to announce that the Queen will visit the House of Biomedicine with the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine on Wednesday 21 March as well as University Campus Limpertsberg on Thursday 22 March. 

  • At Belval, the monarch will  meet LCSB-Director Prof. Rudi Balling and other researchers of the LCSB.
  • At Limpertsberg, the Queen will attend a high level round table discussion dealing with “Europe after the crisis”. Speakers are Vassilios Skouris, President of the European Court of Justice, Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank, as well as Elmar Brok, member of the European Parliament.  Students of different Masters programmes related to Europe, for example the Masters in European Contemporary History or the Masters in European Law, will ask questions and actively participate in the discussion.

The Queen is expected to arrive at Campus Limpertsberg at 9.15 am, accompagnied by Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and their delegations.  After the official welcome by University President Rolf Tarrach, and a picture in front of the main building (Bâtiment Central), the Queen will sign the University’s Golden Book and attend the round table discussion.  The latter is a non-public event.
