Talent Day - 20 maart 2019

Talent Day 2019 Recap

Online foreword


Erasmus University Rotterdam is very pleased to announce that no fewer than 34 researchers were awarded a grant or funding last year. It is with great pride that I present these truly outstanding EUR researchers of 2018. Congratulations to all of you!

Exceptional achievements deserve recognition. Erasmus University has a wonderful tradition: every year, on ‘Talent Day’, we put our top researchers in the limelight. On 20 March 2019, the Executive Board will present the past year’s most talented researchers. These researchers have been awarded funding which includes NWO grants, ERC Grants, Erasmus MC Fellowships, and EUR Fellowships. During this event we will also introduce you to an up-and-coming ‘Research Talent’. 

On Talent Day we will also be presenting the bachelor students who successfully completed the Erasmus Honours Programme. The 49 students who took part in 2018’s programme stand at the very beginning of their academic careers. With their grants and funding, these laureates have gotten off to a fine start on the long, arduous road towards academic success.

In closing, I would like to express my gratitude to the Vereniging Erasmus Trustfonds. Without their support, this Talent Day would not have been possible!
