It turns out that 16 March I will be given the Academic Society Award from the KIVI Engineering Society.  It is a prize for public outreach rather than academic achievement but I am happy with the prize nonetheless. Because it shows that the work of all the hardworking people of our group has societal impact. You will just have to believe me when I say it is of high academic quality also! Thank you to all the brilliant scientists at HMI, this prize is really for you. Nice detail: former Queen Beatrix will be at the award ceremony!
