Luk Van Wassenhove Career Award to Professor Gyöngyi Kovács

Luk van Wassenhove award - Kovács
Professor Luk Van Wassenhove is a pioneer in the area of humanitarian operations. He strives to close the loop between theory and practice by: (i) finding relevant problems in the practice of humanitarian operations, (ii) using rigorous research methods to gain insights on these problems, (iii) publishing his findings in peer-reviewed outlets, pedagogical case studies and other publications, and (iv) giving back to practice through implementable recommendations. Luk is also very generous with his time and contributes actively to strengthen the research community.

To honor Professor Van Wassenhove’s commitment to relevant research in humanitarian operations as well as his commitment to his coauthors, students and the academic community, this award will be based on three criteria:
1. Closing the loop.
2. Generosity.
3. Service.

This year we at the HUMLOG Institute would like to congratulate Professor Gyöngyi Kovács - the first winner of the Luk Van Wassenhove Award! The award ws given at the EURO-HOPE 2021 mini-conference.
