Nathalie Crutzen named Honorary Citizen 2019 by the City of Liège
Tradition obliges, the City of Liège awarded the titles of honorary citizen to several Liège personalities on Wednesday 14 August, as a prelude to the famous festivities of 15 August.
Each year, this title is awarded to a series of personalities who have worked or are working for the development or renown of Liège.
Our team had the pleasure of attending this ceremony, at the town hall, to support and congratulate its Academic Director, Nathalie Crutzen, who was distinguished by the City of Liège alongside 11 other personalities, including 2 other professors from the University of Liège.
During the ceremony, Christine Defraigne, the city's first alderman, saluted not only her career as a professor, but also and above all her role in the creation of the Smart City Institute, which today is spreading its expertise in sustainable and intelligent cities not only throughout Wallonia, but also more widely in Belgium and beyond our borders, on different continents.
We are particularly proud and honoured by this award, which represents for our institute a great recognition of the work accomplished over the last 4 years now, but also of the promising subject that is the intelligent and sustainable city today!
