NWO Spinoza Prize for Theunis Piersma

18 June 2014

Theunis Piersma, professor of Global Flyway Ecology at the University of Groningen, has been awarded a Spinoza Prize. Piersma is free to spend the € 2.5 million prize on any part of his research he wants. Piersma: ‘I relish the fuzzy nature of ecology’(...) ‘Migratory birds are so much more than just their genome. They have an incredible ability to adapt to their demanding way of life and changes to their environment. We want to understand the interaction between that flexibility and the environments in which they grow up.’

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.
