Young Talent and Innovation Award
The yearly event helps the important research at UM to take the important next steps. The University Fund Limburg, who organised the evening, gave the stage to the three young, promising academics Thomas Butterworth, Kay Deckers and Marie-Christine Fregin.

Kay Deckers won the Young Talent and Innovation Award.
