The theme for this year’s prize was “Mathematics” and Professor Haagerup was awarded the prize for his ground-breaking and important contributions to operator algebra, in addition to other new and challenging areas of mathematics. Funded by the Geneva-based Latsis Foundation, the European Latsis Prize is valued at 100,000 Swiss francs (€83,000). The prize is awarded to an individual or a research group who, in the opinion of their peers, has made the greatest contribution to a particular field of European research.
