IBM Best Student Recognition Event 2015 – Amsterdam



Woot woot!

Last week I received a very, very, exciting e-mail. I have been nominated to attend the IBM Best Student Recognition Event 2015:

“80 hand-picked business and technical students from all over Europe, the Middle East and Africa will come together in Amsterdam to get a deep understanding of IBM, network with peers and IBMers and build up ideas for a Smarter Planet.”

Host: IBM Netherlands

Place: Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) Benelux

Date: 8th-10th July, 2015

As a MSc Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture student at the University of Exeter, I’ve had several lectures on food waste. It’s definitely a priority for food security and solutions can come in all forms.

I’m looking forward to meeting all the other students and IBMers to engage in smart conversations on smart food. Finally, I want to thank the four University of Exeter professors who nominated me (Mark van Der Giezen, Sarah Gurr, Michael Winter and Tim Lenton), Jess Hurrell (Corporate Partnerships Manager at the University of Exeter), Demelza Farrer (UK University Programs Manager for IBM) and Clara Coepijn (IBM Netherlands).

I’ll be blogging here and tweeting during the event at @angeladelcast.

See you next week!
