Unique ERIM Highly Distinguished Promotor Awards


On December 15, before moving to the traditional ERIM awards at the ERIM Awards Ceremony, Rector Magnificus Professor Henk Schmidt asked the attention for two of ERIM's senior colleagues that achieved a milestone in their career. Both Professors Philip Hans Franses and Rommert Dekker have delivered their 25th PhD earlier this year.

For this very special occasion, ERIM has created a unique honour award: the ERIM Praeceptor Doctorum Celeberrimus Award (in English: 'Highly Distinguished ERIM Promotor'). This award is made for an ERIM Promotor who has delivered 25 PhDs as a career achievement. The award is entirely written in Latin.

ERIM would like to compliment and congratulate both Philip Hans and Rommert with this achievement.
