During its 2019 Ceremony of Awards, held on October 22 in Madrid, the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc) handed over the Membership Diploma to Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti. He has been elected as Fellow of the Materials Science division in December 2018. EurASc is one of the most prestigious learned societies in Europe. It carries the mission to promote excellence in science and technology and to strengthen their essential roles in fostering social and economic development and progress. Based in Liège, Belgium, the academy currently has about 650 members, including 40 Nobel laureates and 12 Fields Medallists.

EurASc aims at strengthening European science and scientific cooperation and benefits from the expertise of its members in advising European bodies in the advancement of European research, technological applications and social development. It has been founded to establish an efficient collaboration among scientists, researchers, educators, engineers and public authorities world-wide by promoting the interaction between basic and applied research and easing transfer of knowledge between scholars and end-users. "The European Academy of Sciences recognizes and elects only the best European scientists with a vision for Europe as a whole. Therefore I feel very honored that this prestigious Academy has elected me as one of its members. This is a great recognition for our work at TU Dresden!", says Cuniberti.
