  • 11 maart 2021

(only in English) The Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences (FTA) CZU has elected a foreign national as a new dean in an effort to expand its international positioning/ranking

In March 2021, Prof. Patrick Van Damme became the second dean of the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences (FTA) but the first dean ever as a foreign national in the history of the Czech University of Life Sciences. A professor in tropical agronomy, Patrick Van Damme speaks 6 languages (and knows about a few more…) and is retiring later this year from his home university in Belgium, but has a lot of energy and plans to consolidate FTA´s international ranking and further develop its international mandate.
