Top Swedish scientist professor Bertil Andersson awarded prestigious Wilhelm Exner Medal in Vienna
Date:11/22/2010

Professor Bertil Andersson, a world-renowned Swedish scientist known for his groundbreaking work in biochemistry, received the prestigious Wilhelm Exner Medal in Vienna yesterday.

He joins an illustrious list of laureates which includes 15 Nobel Prize winners. The award is in recognition of his research related to artificial leaves and its creation as well as his contributions to European and Austrian research. This Medal has been awarded since 1921 to scientists and inventors whose work has opened new possibilities in industrial applications.

"I am deeply honoured and yet humbled to be in the prestigious company of the most outstanding scientists and inventors in the last nine decades who have shaped the world we live in today," said Prof Andersson, who was nominated by the laureates and unanimously accepted by the General Assembly of the Austrian Association of Small and Middle-Sized Enterprises (sterreichischer Gewerbeverein, GV).

Wilhelm Exner, the eponym of the medal, was a pioneer in Austria's industrial development, as well as a university professor, technologist, politician, reformer of industrial education, founder of the Museum of Technology, Vienna, and Honorary President of GV.

For Professor Andersson, author of more than 300 papers covering topics from photosynthesis research to biological membranes, life has been a series of breakthroughs. The former commando was a competitive skier who swept sports medals, before moving on to win medals for his research work.

Come 2011, he will become the first Swedish as well as first foreign President to head Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU), one of the two largest public universities in Singapore, which Professor Andersson describes as a "small smart country like Sweden".

"NTU's spirit is one of resilience, perseverance and the ability to overcome all odds. This resonates well with me because it is very similar to the Swedish spirit,"
