Congratulations! Valentine Ananikov has been elected to Academia Europaea!
The European Academy of Sciences (Academia Europaea) was founded in 1988. It unites about four thousand globally acknowledged experts in mathematics, medicine, natural sciences, humanities, law, economy, and social and political sciences from many countries of Europe. Among its members are also European scientists who live in other regions of the world. Currently, it includes seventy two Nobel laureates and it should be highlighted that many of them were elected to the Academy before winning the Prize.
The overall goal of Academia Europaea is to unite scientists for the advancement and propagation of excellence in scientific research, for furthering interdisciplinary and international research alongside with raising prestige of scientific activity and protecting rights and interests of researchers. One of the most important matters the Academy deals with is defining crucial research topics of global significance and developing actions to ensure maximum research efficiency.
In 2018, an Associate Member of RAS, DSc. Valentine Ananikov from Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry was elected a member of the European Academy. The membership in Academia Europaea is a great honor and high esteem of researcher’s achievements; just a few new members are elected annually. The chemistry panel of the Academy currently comprises only 11 Russian members, who are globally recognized researchers such as A.R. Khokhlov, V.N. Parmon, O.M. Hefedov, and I.I. Moiseev.
