Date:6/6/2014

sor at both Leiden University and the University of Santa Barbara. He combines the expertise of both research groups: experiments at extremely low temperatures and nanotechnology. Bouwmeester works closely with colleagues and specialised companies to develop the instruments he needs for his research. Bouwmeester wants to disseminate his knowledge to a wider public: for example, he participates in school projects and he also took part in a two-day meeting between physics and Buddhism with the Dalai Lama.

Nominated by professor Carel Stolker, Rector of Leiden University.

Professor C.L. (Corinne) Hofman (1959) is Professor of Caribbean Archaeology at Leiden University. Since the 1980s she has been carrying out archaeological research in the Caribbean region. Hofman studies the colonisation of the Caribbean from the viewpoint of the Caribbean-Indian population. With this approach she is rewriting the region's history and is providing new perspectives on a previously forgotten but important chapter in the world's history. Hofman has ensured that the vague historical picture that existed about Caribbean societies (and therefore the original inhabitants of the Dutch Antilles in the Caribbean as well) has become an accurate, evidence-based reconstruction of settlements, burials, mobility, trade, material culture and lifestyle. The archaeologist focuses mainly on the communication systems and networks of interaction of the original Indian population before 1492 and the cultural and social changes that occurred in this after the European colonisation.

Transdisciplinary collaboration in NEXUS1492

Hofman heads up a large European transdisciplinary collaborative project NEXUS1492 in which more than 50 researchers are involved. For this project she received a European ERC Synergy Grant of 15 million euros in 2012. The team from Leiden, University, VU University Amsterdam and the University of Konstanz is doing research into the first cultura
