Date:9/9/2013

niversity La Sapienza, Rome; Fellow of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Rome, and of the Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze detta dei XL, Rome) read the citation for the assignment of the Prize for Quantum Information Processing and Communication to Alain Aspect.:

"For his pioneering experiments which led to a striking confirmation of Quantum Mechanics as opposed to local hidden-variable theories. His work opened the way to the experimental control of entangled quantum states, the essential element of Quantum Information Processing".

Peter Suter (Honorary Professor of Medicine at the University of Geneva; Vice-President of the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences) read the citation for the assignment of the Prize for Infectious diseases: basic and clinical aspects to Pascale Cossart.:

"For her seminal discoveries on the molecular biology of pathogenic bacteria and their interaction with host cells. Her research has provided very significant insights into the mechanisms underlying infectious diseases and how they might be combatted".

The President of the General Prize Committee, Professor Salvatore Veca, announced that the 2014 Balzan Prizes will be awarded in the following fields:

  • Classical Archaeology
  • Epistemology
  • Mathematics (pure or applied)
  • Plants and Forest Ecology

The amount of each of the four 2014 Balzan Prizes will be 750,000 Swiss Francs (approx. 610,000; $800,000; 515,000).

The award fields vary each year and can be related to either a specific or an interdisciplinary field, and look to go beyond the traditional subjects both in the humanities (literature, the moral sciences and the arts) and in the sciences (medicine and the physical, mathematical and natural sciences), so as to give priority to innovative research.

Half of the amount received by the winner of each of the four prizes must be destined to research work, preferably involving young scholars and researchers.
