As part of our efforts to foster and recognize interdisciplinarity, ASCoR has instituted a new fellowship to recognize researchers from other disciplines for outstanding contributions to our research. This fellowship is named after our late colleague prof. dr. Loet Leydesdorff, who has done so much inspiring work in this area. ASCoR members can nominate fellows on a yearly basis. Nominations are reviewed and selected by the ASCoR Board.
