Stan Bentvelsen has been reappointed for a second five-year term as director of Nikhef in the Netherlands. Bentvelsen, an experimental physicist on ATLAS and an academic at the University of Amsterdam, first became director in 2014 and has overseen Nikhef’s involvement in international projects such as KM3NeT, XENON, Auger and a test facility of the proposed Einstein Telescope. He plans “to continue to open doors to new physics through diversification of experiments, both accelerator-based and other detectors, from physics to astroparticle physics.”
