Prof. Ria Broer elected as IAQMS member

07 July 2014


In in its annual meeting in Menton, France, the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science (IAQMS, www.iaqms.org) has elected Prof. Ria Broer-Braam of the Theoretical Chemistry group, Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, as a member.
With this honourful distinction IAQMS wishes to recognise Broer's leading and successful role in demonstrating the usefulness of the methods of quantum chemistry in the study of localized properties in solids. In addition, her instrumental contributions to the establishment of European Master and PhD programs in Theoretical Chemistry were cited.

IAQMS members are chosen among the scientists of all countries who have distinguished themselves by the value of their scientific work, their role of pioneer or leader of a school in the broad field of the application of quantum mechanics to the study of molecules and macromolecules. The Academy has as its main goal to provide a forum for international contact and collaboration and a periodical evaluation of the main developments, advances and promising directions of research in the broad field of its interest.

The International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science was created in 1967, with Professors Raymond Daudel (France), Per-Olov Löwdin (Sweden),Robert G. Parr (USA), John A. Pople (USA) and Bernard Pullman (France) as its founding members, under the inspiration and with the support of Professor Louis de Broglie, Nobel Laureate and Perpetual Secretary of the French Academy of Sciences, Paris. The Academy was planned to have 25 (later 35) regular members under 65 years of age and could have an unlimited number of senior members. This restriction in the number of members and the distinction between regular and senior members were deleted from the Academy's Statutes in 2007. The members are chosen among the scientists of all countries who have distinguished themselves by the value of their scientific work, their role of pioneer or leader of a school in the broad field of the application of quantum mechanics to the study of molecules and macromolecules. The Academy has as its main goal to provide a forum for international contact and collaboration and a periodical evaluation of the main developments, advances and promising directions of research in the broad field of its interest.
