An experimental physicist from Technion has been awarded the Lem Prize 2023. The statuette was presented at a gala ceremony in the auditorium of the Wrocław University of Science and Technology.

The Stanisław Lem European Research Prize (Lem Prize) was established in 2021 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the eminent Polish science fiction writer, who received an honorary doctorate from the Wrocław University of Science and Technology in 1981. The prize of PLN 100 000 is awarded to young scientists (under 40 years of age) studying or carrying out research in the European Union and associated countries.

The winner is selected each year by a chapter composed of eminent scientists from abroad and the Wroclaw Tech and Tomasz Lem, the writer’s son. Candidates are assessed on the basis of recent discoveries or significant achievements in broad areas of science and engineering, with strong elements of technology, interdisciplinarity, creativity and vision.
