University of Groningen: Unveiling of portrait series of professors

On Monday evening, 1 November, a new series of portraits were presented to our University. During this special moment, we celebrated the fact that no fewer than 20 portraits were donated to the UG between 2019 and 2021. Special attention was paid to 11 portraits of female professors, which were added to the Senate Room at the initiative of the Board of the University and the faculties. By giving these professors an extra prominent place, the UG wants to make it clear that it is a university where both men and women excel in their field. In addition, nine professors independently donated their portraits to the UG. Their portraits will hang in the faculty rooms of Medical Sciences, Arts, Economics and Business, and Behavioural and Social Sciences.’

The following professors have been portrayed:
