Uta Noppeney and Erik Storkebaum new members of the Academia Europaea

The Academia Europaea was founded in 1988 and is the pan-European academy of sciences, humanities, law, and literature. The aim of the Academia Europaea is to promote and disseminate excellence in the sciences and humanities throughout the world for the benefit of the general public and to promote the education of the public of all ages in Europe. Several Donderians are member of this network and Uta Noppeney and Erik Storkebaum are the latest additions to this prestigious network

Academia Europaea (AE) functions as an academy with more than 5,500 members. It also includes external members from outside Europe. To become a member, you have to be nominated by two other members and selected by an evaluation committee. The network advises governments and international organisations from a multidisciplinary and international scientific perspective. One of the main current topics on AE's agenda is the war in Ukraine and how to support Ukrainian scientists. Storkebaum is looking forward to his membership:

‘Becoming an AE member is an honour and a recognition of the work of my lab. I am looking forward contributing to this prestigious network. One of the topics I would like to address is animal research. I think I can help develop and monitor good policy for this important aspect of science.’
