Foundation for Information Science
Welcome to the SIU website! "Stichting Informatiekunde Utrecht" translates to Foundation for Information Science Utrecht.
The foundation aims to accomplish three main goals: improve the reputation, the awareness and the content of the Information Science programmes (in Dutch) at the Utrecht University as well as the concept Information Science in general (also look here for further information). SIU wants to achieve this by adding extra value to the counselling of information science as a programme as well as a specialism, in the form of extra-curricular activities and by supporting the information science alumni network AIU.
This year, the first students are finishing their studies and getting a degree in information science at Utrecht University. It is therefore time to take action and give these students a real farewell. Alumni Information Science Utrecht (AIU) is therefore actively communicating with graduates, with the goal to create an information science alumni network. This will certainly help putting a link between education and the real world.
At the moment a lot of effort is being put into developing the SIU further... Ideas and support are always welcome!
