Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences / TINC Nomination Proposal / 2009 Prize

Photographer: Austin Evan. Released under Creative Commons Licence.

The KFAS has issued invitation for submissions of candidates whose scientific research deserves recognition. As it pertains to TINC, prizes will be awarded in basic sciences, applied sciences, physics, and cancer diseases. Categorical prizes will be awarded to citizens of Kuwait and of any Arab nation.

Other conditions and qualifications prevail: http://www.kfas.com/ga_awardsandprizes.html

Each winner receives a cash sum of 30K Kuwaiti dinar (which currently equates to 112 ounces of gold); a gold medal; a KFAS shield; and a Certficate of Recognition.

The KFAS will accept nominations from individuals, academic and scientific centres, learned societies, past recipients of the Prize, and from peers of the nominees.

I propose here the notion that the community of TINC, its S & A Board, and its various forum members put forth the name of Dr. Mohamed Abdel-Mottaleb, PhD, to the KFAS as a candidate for consideration.

Dr. Abdel-Mottaleb is a frontliner of the NanoScience/NanoTech vanguard in the Middle East.
Having worked in research labs in Belgium and Germany -specializing in STM and AFM applications-
his investigations have encompassed surface modification, device fabrication, nano-wire construction, the quantum dot blinking phenomenom, alternative energy, and sensor technologies. His list of peer-reviewed publications is lengthy and note-worthy, including co-authorship on a work with NATO. Now the Founder and CEO of Sabyr Corp. Ltd., the first nanotechnology corporation in the Middle Eastern/North African region, Abdel-Mottaleb has also served as organizer and chairman of two NanoTech Insight conferences, while maintaining Professorial and Principal Investigator duties within the Nano/PhotoChemistry & SolarChemistry research lab at the Ain Shams University in Cairo.

In addition to the above-mentioned prize categories, Abdel-Mottaleb's accomplishments could possibly garner a win in these additional KFAS slots: Economic & Social Sciences, Arabic & Islamic Scientific Heritage, Privatization Programmes and their Effects on Development in the Arab World, City Planning and Topography.

Please do confer among your peers and then advance the worthiness of this very capable individual.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
