We’re proud to inform you that Dr.ir. J. (Jan) Zuidema has been appointed as of 1 April 2015 as new program manager for structural materials within the Science & Market Platform cluster.

Jan used to be a PhD student in NIMR (former M2i) where he finished his PhD-study on direct chill casting in 2003. After that Jan has held several positions in both Research & Technology as well as in Operations management at Tata Steel and Nedstaal in the Netherlands.

We think that Jan is well positioned to take up the role as program manager. In the coming weeks many of you will get the opportunity to meet Jan. We wish Jan lots of success in his new role.
