UNESCO awards Science Prizes on World Science Day

10 November 2003

This year’s six UNESCO science prizes will be awarded in Budapest (Hungary) today, at the closing of the three-day World Science Forum. The event coincides with UNESCO’s celebration of World Science Day. The prizes will be awarded by Walter Erdelen, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences, on behalf of Director-General Koichiro Matsuura. On the same day, at a special ceremony in Caracas (Venezuela), the 2002 Kalinga Prize will be given posthumously to the late Marisela Salvatierra, who was prevented by poor health from receiving it when she was still alive
