This year the evening of Science & Society was a blended event, with guests at the Hodshon Huis in Haarlem and guests who attended online.
Each year, during this event, the Huibregtsen prize is awarded for a research project that is scientifically innovative and could lead to a social application.
And the winners are..
Johan Hoorn and Elly Konijn received the prize for their multidisciplinary research project 'Alice, an electromechanical grandchild'. They receive a prize, consisting of €25,000, a sculpture and they are offered to organize a workshop at the Lorentz Center.
We congratulate the winners and we are looking forward to organize a workshop with them.
