Pavel Pudlák and Vladimír Šverák received the Neuron Award for Contribution to Science 2017

On 6th December 2017, the **Neuron Foundation for Support of Science **awarded seven researchers the prestigious Neuron Award for Contribution to Science.

In the field of computer science, which has been included for the first time this year, the award went to Pavel Pudlák, member of the Institute of Mathematics of the CAS and a worldwide renowned specialist in the complexity theory whose expertise has been credited by the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant **FEALORA** in 2014. We are proud that after Miroslav Fiedler, Ivo Babuška and Eduard Feireisl this is already the fourth Neuron Award for a researcher who is or used to be member of the Institute of Mathematics.

In the field of mathematics where the awards have been given every year since 2010, the laureate of this year is Vladimír Šverák from the University of Minnesota, an eminent specialist in partial differential equations and mathematical theory of continuum mechanics. Vladimír Šverák started his career in the Institute of Mathematics and currently he serves as member of fhe International Advisory Board of the Institute.

The European Young Researchers Award

The European Young Researchers Award is granted since 2010 to researchers demonstrating outstanding research performance and leadership. It aims to inspire early stage researchers to incorporate a European dimension and perspective into their research. The Award is granted each year; in odd years, the prize is dedicated to PhD candidates, and in even years to post-doctoral fellows. The Award consists of a Certificate, waiving the participation fee to ESOF, a grant to cover travel and accommodation for the stay in the ESOF city and a two years’ free EuroScience membership. **ESOF 2018** will be held in Toulouse from 9 to 14 July.

Yves Meyer receives the Abel Prize 2017

The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters has decided to award the Abel Prize for 2017 to Yves Meyer of the École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay, France “for his pivotal role in the development of the mathematical theory of wavelets”. Meyer's work has a relevance extending from theoretical areas of mathematics to the development of practical tools in computer and information science. As such it is a perfect example of the claim that work in pure mathematics often turns out to have important and useful real-world applications. Yves Meyer will receive the Abel Prize from His Majesty King Harald V at an award ceremony in Oslo on 23 May.
