Away with disposable cups

Cup of coffee or tea? Use the Billie Cup!

Early class at 8:30? You wake yourself up with a cup of coffee from the coffee machine. Later, you have a class in another building so you quickly grab a new one. Then you switch to tea, another cup. That’s 3 disposable cups in one day.

Yavor is in Milan with a goal

From ice hockey to life sciences

Yavor Yordanov’s (23) story is both unusual and inspiring. At 18, he arrived in Nijmegen from Bulgaria to pursue a career as an ice hockey goalie. The covid pandemic ended this dream. But he'd also been studying Life Sciences at HAN. Yavor is now more motivated than ever to succeed: not as an ice hockey player, but as an academic. And for a very special reason.
