McMaster university is a highly ranked university and very strong in medicine and health sciences. VU Professor Eco de Geus spoke with his counterparts and the synergy was felt at both sides. Jaap Winter and his colleague President Patrick Deane exchanged on their joint vision on how universities should not only aim for excellent research and education, but also see to their societal responsibility.

The signing of the MOU was very special since it was done in the presence of Royal Highness Princess Margriet and Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven, visiting McMaster as part of their trip to Canada.
