As of 1 March 2018, Eva Knies is appointed as Professor of Strategic Human Resource Management at the Utrecht University School of Governance (USG) of the Faculty of Law, Economics, and Governance. In the coming years, Eva Knies will focus on the cross-fertilisation between the Strategic Human Resource Management and Public Management/Public Administration disciplines.
In the research that will conducted under her supervision, Eva Knies will focus on Strategic HRM and public value creation, leadership, and sustainable employability.
The Utrecht University School of Governance (USG) is very pleased as Eva Knies is the first USG alumna (bachelor and master) to be appointed as full professor. The brand new professor herself is also proud of her appointment: ‘I have always felt supported to develop myself and undertake new tasks and projects at USG. In the position of professor new tasks and responsibilities await me again. I find that very challenging. Furthermore: USG is a great place to work. That is more than enough motivation to stay here.’
