The Hans van Houwelingen Award Biometry Award is granted every two years to a first author of either Dutch nationality or working in a Dutch institution. The publication that is granted the award has contributed significantly to the development or application of biometry. Further conditions have been set down in the Biometry Award Regulations. Previous winners of the award are given in the table below:

The Professor Corsten Biometry Fund was founded in 1988 with the objective to stimulate biometry in those countries where financial resources are limited. Some recent examples of support to individual biometricians and organizations are:
Applications for funding may be directed at the secretary of the board of the Biometry Fund (Sophie Swinkels: firstname.lastname@example.org). All decisions regarding the allocation of funds are made by the board.
The Biometry Fund is sponsored by individuals, institutions, and companies in the Netherlands as well as abroad. The table below shows the yearly donations (in euro) between 1993 and 2004.
It can be seen that the rates have been varying, with a peak in 1996, when the International Biometric Conference in Amsterdam was organized.
You can become a sponsor of the Biometry Fund by participating in our yearly fundraising campaign or by making a donation to

Your gift will be appreciated!
The activities of the Biometry Fund are coordinated by a board of three. Since 2018, this board is merged with the board of BMS-ANed. They provide a yearly account which is reviewed by the treasurer of the Netherlands Region of the IBS (ANed). The administrative costs are minimal. Currently, the board consists of:
