Derrick Gosselin receives prestigious RSA Fellowship

(14-06-2017) Professor Derrick Gosselin becomes a new Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

Ghent University and Oxford University Professor of Management, Professor Derrick Gosselin, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).  This is a recognition for his outstanding and multiple contributions to society.

The RSA is an enlightenment organisation which is committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today's social challenges. Through its ideas, research and Fellowship, it "seeks to understand and enhance human capability to close the gap between today's reality and people's hopes for a better world".

 

 

Reacting to news of his Fellowship, Professor Gosselin said:

"Being elected a Fellow of the RSA is without doubt an honour for both myself and for the organisations I represent. It is even more of an honour to join a highly respected society whose past and present members include Charles Dickens, Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, William Hogarth, John Diefenbaker, Stephen Hawking and Tim Berners-Lee and is committed to finding innovative and practical solutions to today's social challenges. Further to this, my election to the RSA falls in line with the goals and ambition of as well Ghent University as both Green Templeton College and the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford, in making a real impact."
