Nobel Prize 2013
The International Solvay Institutes are pleased to warmly congratulate François Englert, Professor Emeritus at the ULB and distinguished member of the International Solvay Institutes, for the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics. The Prize was given jointly to him and Peter Higgs, "for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles (...)" (http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/2013/).

The discovery had been rewarded earlier by many prestigious prizes, including the Prize of the European Physical Society in 1997, the Wolf Prize in 2004
(http://www.wolffund.org.il/index.php?dir=site&page=winners&cs=305&language=eng) and the Prince of Asturias Award in 2013

Solvay Prize 2013
All our congratulations also go to Peter Schultz, Professor at the Scripps Institute (California), first laureat for the Chemistry for the Future Solvay Prize (2013).

Announced on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Solvay company by Ernest Solvay, the prize perpetuates his commitment as a strong supporter of scientific research. It is intended to endorse basic research and underline the essential role of chemistry as a science and an industry to help solve some of the most pressing issues the world is facing. The 300,000 Euros prize will be awarded every two years.
