Six hundred and sixty young scientists from 101 countries and seventy Nobel Prize winners meet this summer in Lindau for knowledge exchange and inspiration. Mike is one of the seven top talents from the Netherlands nominated by the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW) and selected by the Lindau Nobel Laureate MeetingsĀ Council.

The purpose of the Lindau Meeting is to transfer knowledge between generations of scientists, to strengthen international networks and to inspire both young scientists and Nobel Prize winners. The selection this year are based on research excellence and interdisciplinary background and is targeted to young scientists under the age of 35.

With double degrees of Physics and Chemistry (Cum Laude) and about two years of excellent research track record at M2N as well as at our group, Mike is selected as one of the youngest participants under the category of undergraduate students. This is an exceptional achievement. Congratulations, Mike! Enjoy the meeting and look forward to hearing your experiences at the meeting in July.
