Over the past years, the HeartBeat Festival has become the festive opening of the academic year of the EUR. This year’s theme is ‘Enjoy Summer Vibes’. For both staff and students, the Erasmus Plaza was transformed into a festival area with food trucks, lounge areas, bars and good music.

Photographer Arie Kers and EM’s video team captured the ambiance of the event.
