Bridging the Disciplinary Gap for a Sustainable Future

Looking Back

Patricia Osseweijer, Professor of Science Communication at Delft University, has won the seventh Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship. She received the award from the chair of the NIAS-Lorentz Advisory Board, Sijbolt Noorda, at an award ceremony on 26 March 2015. 

Professor Osseweijer held an enthusiastic and persuasive presentation on the need to make the transition from a fossil to a bio-based economy. During the fellowship, starting in September 2015, she plans to bring scientists from (bio)technology  and social sciences together, trying to bridge the existing gap between these disciplines in order to formulate shared, agreed upon solutions for a sustainable future.
