The 'Analytical Sciences Power List 2013' published by The Analytical Scientist magazine places UvA professor Peter Schoenmakers at an honourable seventh place. In a European perspective he even takes the third position.
The power list is a ranking of the 100 'most influential people in the analytical sciences'. It is based on a poll among the readers of the magazine and the visitors of its website. They were invited to submit three names of scientists, engineers, software developers or business leaders in the field of the analytical sciences.
The list not only measures influence, but also indicates 'who are shaping the most used and innovative techniques today'.
