KNAW

The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) serves as a learned society representing the full spectrum of scientific and scholarly disciplines. Also, this institution acts as a management body for national research institutes and it advises the Dutch Government on matters related to scientific pursuit. In the Netherlands, a membership of the KNAW is seen as an honour for an academic career. Several scholars of Erasmus University Rotterdam have been granted this honour.
