Frans Timmermans – Bringing the EU Closer Together

Frans Timmermans – An Introduction

New European Commissioner Frans Timmermans was awarded for his major contributions to both European and international relations.

During the official celebration of the University of Maastricht’s 39th anniversary, four outstanding individuals were awarded an honorary doctorate for their exceptional contributions to academic education and research or their contributions to society. We made short video portraits of each of them for the award ceremony.
