RUSNANORIZE Nanotechnology International prize
In 2015, RUSNANOPRIZE Nanotechnology International Prize was awarded to Dr. Yury Gogotsi, Professor of Drexel University, Director of the Anthony J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute and Dr. Patrice Simon, Professor of Paul Sabatier University. The prize solemn award ceremony was held within the frameworks of Open Innovation Forum. The Prize was awarded for formulation of basic principles for development of materials for electrochemical capacitors and for the development of nanostructured carbon materials, which facilitated commercial production and wide use of supercapacitors in energy storage, automotive and many other industries. For successful integration and commercialization of nanostructured carbon materials, and for applying principles for development of materials for electrochemical capacitors to successful ultracapacitors mass production RUSNANOPRIZE is awarded to Maxwell Technologies Inc. (USA).
