WIAS has appointed a new member for its Research Committee. The Research Committee advises the scientific director of WIAS about various research topics and consists of associate and personal professors. Current chair Geert Wiegertjes became a chair holder of AFI and therefore left the Research committee. We are happy to announce that Eddie Bokkers will be a member of the research committee from 1 March 2018. We wish Eddie lots of luck with his work for the Research Committee and look forward to a fruitful collaboration. Walter Gerrits will replace Geert as chair of the committee.
