Pim Martens hands over his position as director of ICIS
After 9 years, Pim Martens hands over his directorship of ICIS. Pim Martens was appointed in 2004 at MU as professor of Global Dynamics and Sustainable Development and as director of ICIS. In this period, ICIS has further improved its international standing as one of the most prominent sustainability science research institutions. Professor Martens founded the Maastricht University Graduate School of Sustainability Science (MUST), and under his leadership the international M.Sc. and Ph.D programs ‘Sustainability Science & Policy’ were initiated. Pim Martens remains active as the director of MUST and in numerous national and international commissions and programmes in the area of his (visiting) professorships at Maastricht, Leuphana and Stellenbosch University. He will thereby continue to give further visibility to the important MU priority domain of “sustainability science”. Dr. Ron Cörvers will be ICIS’ new director from May 1, 2013.
