Daniela Wilson granted the Westerdijk Talent Scheme

Prof. Daniela Wilson (RU) received the Westerdijk Telent Scheme. The goal of the Westerdijk Talent Scheme programme is to increase the number of female professors and therefore create better diversity at the top of Dutch academia. As an extra boost to ensure that all scientific talent in the Netherlands will be utilized, the Dutch government funds 5 million euros for the appointment of 100 women professors. With this extra investment in the ‘Westerdijk year’, universities are encouraged to increase the number of female professors. Read more about the Westerdijk Talent Scheme here.
