To conduct inspired international education and research of the highest level, both the scientific and the support personnel require stable working conditions. United we stand.
As an internationally active scientist with a passion for good education and a strong social commitment I can give an important contribution to the University council. I helped usher in the first personnel council of the KVI. Within the physics department I have been the driving force to establish the curriculum committee for streamlining physics education. For the university as a whole I have been one of the initiators leading to the installation of advanced video-lecturing infrastructure that makes it possible to use the Donald Smits room for interactive international lectures.
In my opinion it is very important that our university takes a strong international position. This is to the advantage of education as well as research; students will learn early to operate in an international setting. My aim is to stimulate this. To achieve this strong position it is important that a good collaboration exists among the various faculties to profit optimally from each others’ experiences. Insights obtained from the workfloor should be taken seriously. As a channel for these insights I will always be reachable, in particular via e-mail and Facebook. To be able to offer an optimal environment for study and research it is necessary to have good collaboration between the scientific and the support personnel. The latter group must receive recognition for the professional contributions it gives, often behind the scenes, to enhance the quality. I whole-heartedly support a strong social policy. United we stand.
