Carlo Beenakker receives honorary doctorate in Kiev
Leiden physicist Carlo Beenakker has received an honorary doctorate from the Bogoliubov Institute for theoretical physics in Kiev.
For many years, physicists at Leiden University have had a close relationship with colleagues in the Ukraine. As a token of recognition for this cooperation, Carlo Beenakker received an honorary doctorate from the Bogoliubov Institute for theoretical physics in Kiev. Beenakker is a member of an international advisory committee of the Ukrainian ministry of sciences and therefore visits the country on a regular basis. ‘I’m always happy to visit the Bogoliubov Institute, which is a school of extremely good students. The working conditions in Ukraine are not easy, but they succeed to maintain a high level of science.’
