Eindhoven Young Academy of Engineering welcomes six new members
The six researchers want to make the TU/e a better place for early-career academics, engineers and designers.
The Eindhoven Young Academy of Engineering (EYAE), founded in 2018 to foster the scientific and organizational leaders of TU/e of the future, has inaugurated six new members. They are Bas Overvelde, Bart Jansen, Olga Mula Hernández, Lenneke Kuijer, Alexios Balatsoukas-Stimming and Josefine Proll. In this story, we introduce the six new members, and hear more about their ambitions for AYAE.
Welcoming the new members during a special inauguration dinner, rector Frank Baaijens said he was happy that within only a few years EYAE has developed into a vibrant group that is committed to making TU/e a better place. He is also grateful for the advice – both solicited and unsolicited - that EYAE has given to the executive board.
The new members have been appointed for a four year term. They join 23 other members who represent all departments at TU/e. The appointments coincides with a transition in the leadership of the Young Academy. Sandra Loerakker has taken over from Yoeri van de Burgt as chair. Roy van der Meel will take on the position of vice-chair. Max Birk and Karin Smolders will make up the rest of the board.
