And the Winner is: The Appointee…

It is that time of year again when researchers at the Erasmus School of Economics are appreciated for their academic effort. The list doesn’t seem to change much and several names keep reappearing again, and again. Survival of the fittest? The irony would be certainly amusing. Fortunately, there are also a couple of new names.

Last Thursday the ESE Awards Ceremony was held and familiar names were announced, like Peter Goos and Peter Wakker that seem to be awarded the Top Senior Researcher award almost every year. Fortunately, there are also new names like Andreas Pick and Wing Wah Tham that picked up the Top Talen Researcher Award.

A name that seems to be printed on the office paper by default, Philip Hans Franses was awarded the Top Senior Researcher Award. The winners were appointed by the dean of the ESE, P.H. Franses. We hope to see picture where the dean hands the award to Franses soon.

Philip Hans Franses has been awarded the Award 6 times in the last 7 years. Albert Wagelmans, Professor of Management Science and Director of the Econometric Institute at the ESE, has sent out an email this afternoon (April 8, 2013) to congratulate the winners, and of course his boss & dean Franses.

An interesting addition to the list is Liesbeth Noordegraaf-Eelans that qualified for the ESE Visibility Award. It is very much appreciated to finally also have a female researcher announced during the ceremony, but it is perhaps a coincidence that her promoter is dean Philip Hans Franses. (Source: ERIM.) Hopefully there will be more women on this list in the future that are not directly affiliated to the dean.

We have addressed the ESE Awards Ceremony previously, back in March, 2013. Last year’s Award winners can be found here.

I wish I was a peacock, back to you.
