Fred Kavli has been awarded the 2005 "Best of Small Tech Awards: Advocate" by Small Times magazine, which covers developments in the micro and nanotechnology industry. The award was given for the establishment, beginning in 2008, of the Kavli Prizes, three, $1 million awards that will recognize advances in the research areas on which the Foundation focuses: astrophysics, neuroscience, and of course, nanoscience. The award, say the magazine's editors, has been heralded as nano's Nobel Prize and will be available to researchers anywhere who advance nanoscience. View Small TImes magazine story.
