AERAP honours Arnold van Ardenne

Submitter: Truus van den Brink
Description: The African-European Radio Astronomy Platform (AERAP) has awarded Arnold van Ardenne a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of his outstanding engagement and lasting contribution to AERAP. The certificate was presented at the one-day symposium, "Reinventing Radio-Astronomy: Technologies that made a Difference" on May 29th, 2013 at ASTRON. This was organized to mark Arnold's 65th birthday.

The overall goals of AERAP are to leverage radio astronomy, advance scientific discovery, improve knowledge transfer and stimulate competitiveness across both continents. Thus it aims to enable effective dialogue to build a shared vision for international cooperation in radio astronomy.

Prof van Ardenne is coordinating the thematic priority Instrumentation, Research and Development of the AERAP Framework Programme for Cooperation and has also been a key participant in nearly all AERAP events.

The certificate was presented by Declan Kirrane (right), Managing Director of ISC Intelligence in Science, a specialised science, technology and R&D public affairs firm based in Brussels. ISC Intelligence in Science does the coordination of AERAP as one of its initiators, together with the South African Mission to the EU.
