Prof. Dr. Ir. P. Van Damme becomes dean in Prague

The Faculty of Agri-Tropical Sciences at CZU (Tsjechiƫ) has elected a foreign national as its new dean in order to expand its international positioning/rank.

Professor Dr. Ir. P. Van Damme (Faculty of Agricultural Sciences UGent) is retiring at the end of this academic year.
But this does not prevent Prof. Van Damme from continuing to pass on his knowledge as dean of the Czech University in Prague (Faculty of Tropical Agriculture); an interview with Prof. Dr. Ir. P. Van Damme

We are delighted to be able to continue to strengthen our forestry projects in Africa with Professor Van Damme.  We are also collaborating with his assistant Emile De Meyer (UGent) on the ongoing projects in Senegal and pilot projects in other countries (more on this later).
