Distinguished research and researchersOctober 20, 2008
The ministry of higher education and scientific research has announced the winners of this year’s distinguished research and distinguished researchers awards. While having such awards is an important step in celebrating and rewarding our scientists and researchers, it is unfortunate that none of the media outlets is bothering to explain what the awards are for, specifically. The value of the awards is in publicizing achievements, and not specific names. Thus, lack of publicity on the achievements diminishes the value.
In this and the next few posts, I will explore some of the achievements of this year’s winners.
