Vote for the Dutch Professor on Fatherhood to win the New Scientist Talent Award!

Published August 23, 2016

Renske Keizer, of the University of Amsterdam, is the world’s first Professor on Fatherhood. Her research focuses on the ways in which fathers influence the development of their children, and ultimately aims to reduce the growing inequality between children. Renske has been nominated for the prestigious New Scientist Talent Award 2016, and you can help her win by voting at newscientist.nl/talent before September 8th.

The New Scientist Talent Award is given to the most promising Dutch or Flemish scientist whose research is not only of considerable scientific and societal impact, but also original and successfully popularised. Every year all 18 Dutch and Flemish universities nominate three of their most promising scientists. The New Scientist shortlists 25 of these nominees, who are reviewed by a jury, which awards points based on indicators such as societal impact and originality. The jury points make up half of the final score, with the other half coming from the public vote. The winner will be announced on September 22nd during the New Scientist Live: Brein event in Amsterdam.
