Award Profile

Erasmus University Rotterdam is a university of academics and practitioners. The enterprising academic and students endeavor to solve global social challenges in the fields of wealth, health, governance and culture. They draw inspiration from the metropolis, which serves as both a testing ground and a laboratory. The university was founded in 1913, when a group of Rotterdam businessmen established the Netherlands School of Commerce to meet the growing demand for skilled personnel for the companies operating in the port of Rotterdam. Later it changed its name and achieved world fame in economics and econometrics, under the guidance of renowned scholars like Nobel Prize winner Jan Tinbergen. The university has always had an international character. Anyone who studies at Erasmus University, which attracts more than 22,000 students, is in fact already doing an international program. Rotterdam is a world port city with and an international life that goes with it. The grant made available by the university is named after Dr. Suzana Rodrigues, who taught at the university for many years.
