Iglesia receives Humboldt award to conduct research in Germany

Professor Alex Pines Professor Enrique Iglesia

October 24, 2007

Chemical engineering professor Enrique Iglesia has received a 2007 Humboldt Research Award from Germany's Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The foundation was established by the Federal Republic of Germany in 1953 for the promotion of international research collaboration. Humboldt Award winners — scientists and scholars whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements — are invited to spend up to a year working with colleagues at research institutions in Germany. Iglesia, whose research focuses on heterogeneous catalysis and chemical reaction engineering, will divide his time between the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft in Berlin (with Professor H.J. Freund) and the Technischen Universitt Mnchen in Munich (with Professor J. Lercher). Iglesia will also receive a Doctor Honoris Causa from the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, Spain, in November.
