On behalf of the Leiden Institute of Physics, Prof. Carlo Beenakker elaborates on the Nobel prize in Physics, which was awarded to David Thouless, Michael Kosterlitz and former Lorentz Professor Duncan Haldane. Beenakker has been a KNAW member since 2002. Other speakers are Hans Clevers (Medicine), Bert Weckhuysen (Chemistry) and Maarten Asscher (Literature).
