International conferences can be regarded as "the epitome" of excellence in a given field. By bringing conferences to Leiden, the international spotlight is focused on the high level of the knowledge sector in our city. The input of Leiden public figures from the knowledge sector and the business community - the ambassadors of Leiden - is an essential link in building the image of 'Leiden City of Science'. The interest in this was higher than we anticipated when we set up our ambassador network. The first Leiden front runners ended up turning into ambassadors, eager to share the knowledge that Leiden has to offer with the rest of the world.
