Logo JSM College

Ilse has been indispensable for the organization around and the implementation of the new bachelor program Philosophy, Politics & Economics, because of her excellent organizational skills, her eye for detail, and her extensive and broad substantive knowledge. On top of that, she is also very pleasant to work with.

Erik Jansen over een lezing die ik gaf (2015):

Sheet presentatie op de HAN

At my invitation Ilse has held a keynote address on the fundamentals of the Capability Approach at our 2015 network event of the Research Centre for Community Care and Social Support (HAN SOCIAAL). She was able to explain clearly the rather complex conceptual framework to a mixed audience ranging from academic scholars to social work professionals and even citizen volunteers. It sparked dialogue and has helped greatly in setting future directions for our projects on the topic.

Han van Ruler over de coördinatie opstart Nederlandse Onderzoeksschool Wijsbegeerte (2013-2014):

OZSW logo

Ilse has worked with me at Erasmus University, where she was assistant director of the Dutch Research School of Philosophy (OZSW) during the first two years of its existence. With her organisational talents, her computer skills and her eagerness to tackle new questions, she proved to be exactly the right person for the challenging task of starting up this new organisation. Ilse is quite exceptional in her way of combining a very independent and pro-active attitude with a perfect intuition of the moment when, either because more input is needed, or for reasons of transparency, the time has come to discuss things with others, or to inform other parties. I have very good memories of the time when I had the pleasure of working with Ilse.

Petra Baumann over de OZSW website (2013):

When I was hired to design and develop a website for the OZSW, Ilse had already put a temporary WordPress site in place. With plugins she had added various useful functionalities, such as an event calendar. My job was to create an attractive design and add some more complex functionalities, such as the OZSW member database. Ilse, on behalf of the OZSW, was a pleasant client to work with. She had good ideas for the site and due to her WordPress knowledge it was easy to communicate with her.

Ilse did a tremendous job organising – almost single-handedly – the first ever General Conference of the OZSW at Erasmus University in November 2013 – a convention that drew no less than 220 participants from all over the world and that has since become a yearly event.

Kathy Rosenblum over de organisatie van de HDCA conferentie (2011):

Ilse did an exceptional job as the organizer of the 2011 HDCA annual conference in The Hague. The three-day event, involving over 350 participants and 7 pre-conference events, was hugely successful – both from a logistical perspective as well as the quality of the speakers and content of the panel sessions. As the HDCA’s Administrator, I know that this view is shared by others within the association. The structure and processes that Ilse put in place have served as a model for subsequent conference organizers.

As a member of the HDCA 2011 international conference committee, I found Ilse’s coordination to be of high professional standards and commitment. She was able to communicate with people at all levels, she was a quick thinker, a problem solver, and was able to cope with tight deadlines and last minute pressures. Her work showed resourcefulness and originality. The conference that she organized in the Hague was a success, and that was to a great part due to her efforts.
