Ben Feringa Impact Award



The Ben Feringa Impact Award was set up in 2020 to reward research projects with a demonstrable social impact.

This year, Michelle Bruijn won the Ben Feringa Impact Award of the University of Groningen. Bruijn, assistant professor at the Faculty of Law, won the award in the category for researchers for her research project entitled ‘The Administrative War on Drugs’. As part of her research project entitled ‘The Administrative War on Drugs’, Bruijn studies combating drug-related crime from a civil law perspective in an innovative manner. This is a highly relevant topic, in which she collaborates with partners from the field. The jury was impressed by the way in which she developed a practical tool which is already being used in workshops and training courses in the field.
