Invitation to the 65th Anniversary of the von Karman Institute: 17-18 December 2021

Friday 1 October 2021

Dear alumni,
Dear friends,

On Friday December 17th and Saturday December 18th, 2021, the von Karman Institute will organize a ceremony for the celebration of its 65th anniversary. In view of the transformation brought by technology, by digitalization, by advances in Fluids Dynamics, by climate change and the pandemic, celebrating together with you, by memorizing the VKI history and tradition and looking forward into the future, we expect a heartful and inspiring time. The Friday 17th will be devoted to the general assembly and the scientific session concluded by a cocktail and the traditional alumni dinner. On Saturday 18th you will visit the labs with our faculty members and engineers and discover the last experiments performed at VKI.

We are proud to celebrate the 65th anniversary of VKI and feel honored to host this celebration looking forward to welcoming you.
We kindly ask you to complete as soon as possible the short personal online survey that has been sent by email last week to allow us to evaluate the total number of attendees for the various activities. if you have not received the invitation by email, do not hesitate to send an email to 65th@vki.ac.be and we will invite you.

With our best regards,
