Nominees for ESET Science Award laureates from TUKE

University Highlights

The ESET Foundation, which grants awards to exceptional scientists called the ESET Science Award, has presented this year's finalists in all categories. The selection includes names of the personalities who significantly represent Slovakia in the global research area, educational process related to higher education, or are young talented scientists. While the laureate in the category of Outstanding Academic is selected by the representatives of Slovak universities, the selection of the laureates of scientific categories is in the hands of the international jury led by Nobel Prize laureate in chemistry Dan Shechtman.

The ESET Science Award was established at the initiative of the ESET Foundation at the end of last year in order to bring under the spotlight those personalities of Slovak science whose contribution is significant internationally or who have achieved scientific breakthroughs. After several months of data collection and evaluation, the ESET Foundation announced finalists in all categories of the ESET Science Award. The list of top five nominees in the main category of "Outstanding individual contributor to Slovak science" includes two representatives of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and three scientists, from the Comenius University, the Technical University of Košice and the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, respectively. The next category, "Exceptional young scientist under the age of 35", involves two representatives of the Comenius University and three young scientists from the Slovak Technical University in Bratislava, the Slovak Academy of Sciences and the Technical University in Košice, respectively. In the category of "Outstanding academic", the final selection includes two representatives of the Slovak Technical University in Bratislava as well as the Technical University of Košice, and one teacher from the Comenius University in Bratislava. The ESET Foundation is going to introduce all laureates to the public at the awards gala held on Friday, October 18, 2019.
