The University of Antwerp also confers honorary doctorates for general merit. In 2013, these were awarded to the rectors of the four other Flemish universities. Their honorary supervisor was Professor Alain Verschoren, Rector of the University of Antwerp. "With these honorary doctorates we want to make it clear that the Flemish universities have been working together more frequently and more closely over the last few years. This collaboration is good for the worldwide reputation of our education and research facilities."
