Gertjan Willems wins NeFCA Young Scholar Award


At the Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap conference, this year organized by Ghent University, CIMS member Gertjan Willems won the biannual Young Scholar Award of NeFCA (Netherlands Flanders Communication Association). The Young Scholar Award honours the accomplishments of young doctors who succeed in combining their individual academic career with contributions to the discipline of communication and media research. The award recognizes young scholars who hold a combination of a good academic track record and notable efforts with respect to the development of the discipline by, for instance, being involved in contributing to the development of their own research group, section, department, or faculty or to the academic community at large.
