Today, the honorary medal of the Baltic Academies of Sciences at the Estonian Academy of Sciences was handed over to Edwin Kreuzer, the President of the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg.
This year, the medal winners of the three Baltic academies of sciences were announced at the Baltic Conference on Intellectual Cooperation "Mathematics for Society" on 28 June in Tallinn. As Kreuzer was not able to attend the conference in person in June, the medal handover took place during his current visit to Estonia (9–12 August).
Professor Edwin Kreuzer was awarded for the advancement of scientific cooperation between the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg and the Baltic Academies of Sciences.
The Medal of the Baltic Academies of Sciences has been awarded since 1999 at the Baltic Conferences on Intellectual Cooperation. The Medal is awarded for contribution to promoting cooperation of the Baltic States and for achievements in science.
