Bonus episode In Science: Ben Feringa on his research & winning the Nobel Prize

10 December 2021

In Science publishes a bonus episode about Nobel Prize winner Ben Feringa. October 5th 2021, it was exactly 5 years since professor Ben Feringa won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

In this bonus episode Arjen, Tina and Wim together with Ben Feringa look back on this special day. Also Elmer Sterken (rector of the RUG at that moment) and Ben's youngest daughter Emma tell us how they have experienced this special moment.

This is a two-part podcast. The first part is in Dutch, in which we look back on the winning of the Nobel Prize, together with Ben Feringa and others who were closely involved. The second part is in English, in which we focus on Feringa’s research and his group. We will look at how Feringa’s research has developed over the last five years and what projects the group is currently working on.
