Danish researchers win the EU Commission's Descartes Prize, worth over half a million dollars, at their first attempt
A research team headed by Professor Lars Fugger of Skejby Hospital, Aarhus, has won the European Commission's prestigious Descartes Prize, worth DKK 4 million (USD 520,000), for research into sclerosis. To be nominated for this high award, three criteria must be met: cutting edge research, commercial value and benefit to European citizens. Professor Fugger and his team took the award in competition with 10 finalists selected from a total of 106 participants. The other finalists were nominated in widely different categories including quantum physics, chemistry, information science and social sciences. It is the third time that the Descartes Prize has been awarded, and the first time that Danish scientists have participated. The news is reported in Jyllands-Posten (JP Århus).
