Excellent scientists with vision and appeal

In 2001, Utrecht University instituted the position of ‘Distinguished University Professor’, aimed at outstanding researchers with an interdisciplinary appeal and breadth of vision. Distinguished University Professors are given the freedom to implement innovative forms of education and research.

The University currently has Distinguished University Professors who are not affiliated with a specific research programme or faculty. You can read more about them and their activities on this page and via the PDFs/links below.
