|Description:|| One of the consequences of the recent changes in the R&D structure is the fact that the activities from the Technology Transfer Office moved from R&D staff to ASTRON staff. After having Ronald Halfwerk almost 20 years at the R&D department, we thought it would be good to pay some well deserved attention to his 'farewell' from the R&D department. We did so during the R&D plenary meeting of February 12th.|
R&D colleagues described Ronald in words like sympathetic, enthusiastic, diligent, a real optimist, control freak, very charming and 'say yes to no'. One of them mentioned that Ronald is probably the one who most frequently moved to another office/desk at the R&D department.
Ronald, thank you for your cooperation and effort for the R&D department! We will miss you as our R&D colleague (but we are glad that you and your office will stay physically in our department)...
