Professor Michael Finnis from Imperial College London receives Humboldt Research Award


Professor Michael Finnis from Imperial College London receives the Humboldt Research Award. The Humboldt Research Award is granted in recognition of a researcher's entire achievements to date to academics whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.

The award was granted following a nomination of ICAMS researchers Professor Ralf Drautz and Professor Jörg Neugebauer (MPIE Düsseldorf) for establishing joint long-term research projects in the area of electronic structure theory, atomistic modelling and scale-bridging simulation. The award is valued at 60,000 EUR.

Award winners are invited to spend a period of up to one year cooperating on a long-term research project with specialist colleagues at a research institution in Germany. The Humboldt Foundation grants up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards annually.
