The greatest

A jury headed by former rector Professor Cees Karssen has selected ten candidates for the title ‘Greatest Wageninger’. All ten nominees are post-war scientists and the list includes two women: Professor Louise Fresco, Assistant Director General of the FAO, and the former chair of Household studies, Professor Mien Visser. The jury selected the ten from over thirty nominations sent into Wb over the summer. Voting will take place in December, after a series of articles on the ten candidates. / GvM
