Professor Lieven Verschaffel
Professor Lieven Verschaffel

The award is given to Professor Verschaffel in recognition of his outstanding contribution to elementary mathematics education over several decades. His research on number, arithmetic and mathematical problem solving has had a considerable influence on the work of several colleagues in MND. Moreover, his collaborations, whether with PhD students or the best-known professors in the field, all receive the same devotion to detail, an encyclopaedic knowledge of the fields in which he is engaged and the acknowledgment that his success is in no small part due to the strength of his team in Leuven. An exceptionally engaging speaker, Lieven will give a very significant and insightful summary of some of his recent work. Details of the time, location and title of his talk will be announced later in the year.
