Norway to award nanotech 'Nobel prize'

Abstract:
The winner, or winners, of the first ever science prize for outstanding achievement in nanosciences will be announced next month by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

The first winners of the new Kavli Prizeexternal , comprising three international awards for outstanding contributions in the fields of nanoscience, neuroscience and astrophysics, will be announced on 28 May 2008.

The prizes, to be awarded every two years, will be presented in co-operation with the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and the Norwegian ministries for education and research and foreign affairs. They are worth $1 million each, which makes them comparable to the cash received by Nobel Prize winners.

According to Professor Reidun Sirevåg, the Academy's secretary general, the prize is the first of its kind for nanoscience. "It will be very interesting to know the winner, as the nanoscience field is not yet that specific," she said.
