AYA Recognition & Rewards Award

The second round of AYA R&R Awards is launched.

AYA welcomes and supports the current attention to Recognition & Rewards in Dutch academia and is committed to furthering forms of excellence and academic community care that are often overlooked in the current system. In line with this commitment, we have launched a new award aimed at academic staff at UvA and VU whose exceptional contributions to the academy might remain below the radar, but nevertheless are essential for a healthy university, be it in the form of teaching, societal impact, or of academic community support as a colleague, teacher, supervisor or mentor. After a successful first edition in 2022, the AYA Recognition & Rewards Award is now going into its second round.
