For the second time, the New Scientist organization is awarding the title “Wetenschapstalent” (scientific talent) to a young researcher from Belgium or The Netherlands. Based on recommendations from all universities in both countries, the jury has selected 25 candidates from various disciplines. Jordi Heijman has been selected as one of these 25 candidates. The 5 finalists and final winner will be selected by combining votes from a jury with a popular vote from visitors to the New Scientist website. More information, and the option to vote, can be found at http://www.newscientist.nl/talent/.
