Vis, Prof. Iris
Iris Vis is Dean of Industry Relations at the University of Groningen (RUG). In this function she is responsible for initiating and maintaining sustainable cooperation of the University with businesses and non-profit organizations. She is also a professor at the Faculty of Economics and Business. Vis has a Master's degree in mathematics from the University of Leiden and received her PhD at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Before joining the University of Groningen, she was an associate professor at the VU University Amsterdam. She was a visiting researcher at CIRRELT (Montreal / Quebec City, Canada), Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, USA) and Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, USA).
Vis enjoys to seek opportunities for interaction with businesses and non-profit organisations. She often starts with a personal visit to a company or meets for a cup of coffee somewhere in the country. Such visits typically provide inspiration for teaching and research. Contacts can lead to projects in which questions of companies and fundamental research questions are brought together, research results are validated in practice, implementation guidance is given, or where policy recommendations are made for boards. With great pleasure, the results of research projects are presented at in-house training at companies and professional conferences. One of the highlights in this respect was the presentation of research results to Queen Máxima.
