We are so proud of our team member Dr Mónica López López of The University of Groningen, who was honoured this week as PhD Supervisor of the Year by the PROMOVENDI NETWERK, which represents the interests of PhD researchers in the Netherlands. PNN awards this prize annually to reward good supervision of PhD candidates.

Dr López López stood out for the jury because of the versatility of her supervision. She assists her PhD candidates in various aspects: not only in successfully completing their PhD trajectory but also in building up a network and gaining relevant experiences. She also pays a lot of attention to their work-life balance and keeps a close eye on the mental health of her PhDs. At the same time, she is not only concerned with the well-being of her own PhDs, but also committed to the overall wellbeing of the PhD community, and is a welcomed speaker at local PhD days.

Due to the corona measures, the Supervisor of the Year award was presented digitally in an online ceremony with the nominees and those who nominated them. This ceremony can be viewed here!
