In memory: Hubert Curien

Hubert Curien (1924-2005) was a physicist, and is regarded as one of the most influential scientists and science policy makers of the 20th century. He contributed uniquely in shaping the present European scientific scene and in fostering the benevolent application of science. As the founding chair of the International Council of The Cyprus Institute and as a board member, Prof. Curien's contribution in the planning and realization of the Institute was pivotal and profound.
With kind regards,
