Eminent physicist

The Physica Award is awarded yearly to an eminent physicist working in the Netherlands, after consultation with representatives of the physics community in the Netherlands, by a jury consisting of the chair of the Nederlandse Natuurkundige Vereniging, the Stichting Physica and a previous winner. 

Van Hecke will receive the award during the FYSICA 2020 conference on Friday 17 April at Twente University. There, he will deliver the Physica lecture. As Martin van Hecke is an excellent speaker, this is expected to be a great story.
