Richard Ernst Prize 2017
It is my pleasure and honor to announce the instauration of a new prize to be awarded in a yearly fashion at the European Magnetic Resonance (EUROMAR) conference. The “Richard R. Ernst Prize in Magnetic Resonance” (from here on the “Ernst Prize”) is named after magnetic resonance pioneer and Nobel Laureate Prof. Richard R. Ernst, and will be awarded to recognize ‘recent beneficial applications of Magnetic Resonance’. The Prize comes with a purse of 10,000 Euros; it is sponsored by the Bruker BioSpin Corporation, and it will be awarded at the inaugural session of our upcoming Euromar 2017 conference in July 2016 in Warsaw.
The Ernst Prize is intended to award achievements going beyond fundamental research, for groundbreaking applications of new or of previously known techniques in all areas of magnetic resonance. It is intended for research published within the last three years, although the origins of the ideas and experiments may have been described in previous publications.
In special cases, and at the discretion of the Prize Committee, the award may be for cumulative achievements over a longer period of time. The Ernst Prize is intended to be awarded to a single individual; however, it may be awarded to up to three scientists if the Prize Committee deems that their contributions to the development of the applications are of equal value.
The 2017 Ernst Prize committee is made by Profs. Lucia Banci (chair), Marina Bennati, Lucio Frydman, Patrick Giraudeau, Wiktor Koźmiński, Alex Pines and Thomas Vosegaard.
