Vrouwelijke wetenschappers bepalen mee de geschiedenis. Ook nu. Maar te vaak blijven ze onopgemerkt. Het is hoog tijd ze een podium te geven. Met die boodschap nodigden Caroline Pauwels, rector van de Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Yvon Englert, rector van de Université Libre de Bruxelles, en het Brussels Institute of Mathematics (BIMS) maar liefst 400 gasten uit op maandag 30 januari voor een exclusieve avant-première van de film Hidden Figures.

Jean Bourgain, VUB alumnus, has received the 2017 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics, for “multiple transformative contributions to analysis, combinatorics, partial differential equations, high-dimensional geometry, and number theory.” A member of the Institute Faculty since 1994, Bourgain was cited by the prize committee for solving major problems in vector spaces, as well as expander graphs; proving one of the two most fundamental theorems in ergodic theory; and developing novel techniques and insights applicable across a wide range of fields. A 1994 recipient of the Fields Medal, Bourgain has produced important work with impact across theoretical computer science, group expansion, spectral gaps, and the theory of exponential sums in number theory.
