Norbert Werner Is the New MUNI Award Holder
Astrophysicist Norbert Werner has become the third grant holder of MUNI Award in Science and Humanities (MASH). After eight years at Stanford University in the United States, he moved to Loránd Eötvös University in Budapest, Hungary. He is also giving lectures in Hiroshima, Japan.
He will relocate to Masaryk University with his research beginning of July. As an expert on the behaviour of black holes or intergalactic gas in Brno, Werner wants to cooperate, among other things, with companies that deal with the development of small satellites.
You can find the interview with Norbert Werner in the latest printed issue of Magazine M and soon also online.
The aim of the MUNI Award grant is to bring new excellent and successful scientists to MU, to whom we offer excellent conditions to produce top scientific results. In the past, the grant was received by Daniel Kráľ, the world's leading expert in graph theory who came to MU from the University of Warwick, and by Matthew Rampley, the world´s leading expert in the art history who came from the University of Birmingham.
