Date of news: 17 February 2021

Roel Willems was awarded the ‘ius promovendi’ at the beginning of February, which entitles him, as an associate professor, to award doctoral candidates the degree of doctor.

Willems is the first at the Center for Language Studies to be granted this right. CLS research director Mirjam Ernestus: ‘You don't just get the ‘ius promovendus’. You really have to be a good researcher with a lot of experience with supervising PhD students.’
