The Goudsmit Prize has been awarded to our colleague Roland Bertens


Last Friday, the Health Law Association (Vereniging voor Gezondheidsrecht, VGR) presented the Goudsmit Prize to our colleague Roland Bertens. Roland received the award for his dissertation "Liberal Solidarity. Guaranteeing Access to Dutch Health Care Under the Banner of Private Initiative, 1848-2015". On 7 January 2021, Roland successfully obtained his doctorate degree with this dissertation. The VGR awards the Goudsmit Prize, which is named after the association's first chairman, Mr C.J. Goudsmit (1901-1975), every other year. It is a personal encouragement to (continue to) produce high-quality publications in the field of Dutch Health law. Congratulations, Roland!
