Frijda Chair

Greg Siegle

The Frijda Chair is named after Nico Frijda (1927-2015), who was emeritus professor of Psychology at the University of Amsterdam and a pioneer of cognitive science in the Netherlands. Each year, the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition center at his alma mater awards this chair to a prominent researcher in the field of brain and cognitive sciences, on the basis of outstanding interdisciplinary achievements.

In 2019, the Frijda Chair is rewarded to Greg Siegle. Dr. Siegle is director of the Programme in Cognitive Affective Neuroscience (PICAN) at the University of Pittsburgh.
