Professors Romain Martin and Tonie van Dam have been nominated as two new vice presidents to join the University of Luxembourg management team.

The announcement about the December decision was made Wednesday.

Romain Martin, 47, will take on the role of VP as of March 2016. Martin is a Luxembourg national who currently heads the Luxembourg Centre for Educational Testing (LUCET) and study director of a primary school teacher education programme. In his new function, he will focus particularly on the Learning Centre project, which is the new Belval Campus central library planned for the Uni.

Starting in 2017, Tonie van Dam will reinforce the team as an additional VP: the 55-year-old American has been at the Uni since 2006 as professor of physical geodesy, a branch of mathematics dealing with the shape and area of the earth or large portions of it. Her function will focus on international relations, gender issues, as well as expanding the doctoral schools.

The term of VP is five years.
