I can say without hesitation that the best part of my day job is the interaction and collaboration with colleagues. Colleagues at ASTRON have very different hobbies and interests, the one even more special than the other. I can honestly say that I have very nice colleagues.

ASTRON has a very active staff association (Personeelsvereniging), which organizes diverse and varied activities. I have, as an active athlete, participated in jogging competitions and clinics, ski activities, kart racing and many other activities. I can recommend everybody to join the PV.
