For scientist Tjisse van der Heide the summer of 2012 was one to never forget. He had an article published in the authoritative journal Science and received a prestigious Veni grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research. And he received the Heineken Young Scientists Award, a special distinction awarded by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Van der Heide works with a research focus on seagrasses.
The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
The Lodewijk Woltjer Lecture Award is awarded to academics who have made exceptional contributions to their field.
The grant is for his project ‘Quenching the thirst for privacy: a system-theoretic approach’.
