Ed Noyons, PhD

Everard Christiaan Marie Noyons is a research fellow at the Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at the Leiden University in the Netherlands and since April 2011 assistant director.

Ed Noyons was born 10 June 1963 in Drunen (NL). He studied Dutch Language and Linguistics at the De Vooys Institute (University of Utrecht) and graduated in 1989 on Particles and Postpositions in Dutch.

Since 1988 he works at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS), Leiden University.

In 1999 Ed received his PhD (cum laude) in Quantitative Studies of Science on a thesis ‘bibliometric mapping as a science policy and research management tool’. In the same year he became a research fellow at CWTS. He has published and co-authored many papers in peer-review international journals, delivers key-note lectures in international conferences and has been program chair in several scientometric conferences.

Ed has developed and managed all mapping projects at CWTS for over ten years and presently, as a member of the Project Board, coordinates CWTS BV projects.

Since 2001 Ed is a member of the CWTS management team and in 2011 he has been appointed as deputy director of CWTS.

Presently Ed’s main research interests involve structures, mapping of science and their use in science policy and research management, field delineation, and  multi-dimensional, in particular societal impact of science.
