George Lake Award 2024

The international committee appointed to nominate candidates for the 2024 George Lake Technology Innovation Award has evaluated a large number of very strong applications. The selection process has been very competitive.

Exceptionally, for this first ever George Lake Award, Fondation Merac has selected two projects rather than just one.

Dr. Emmanuel Hugot

Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Marseille, France

for his project "CASTLE-GT: the Calar Alto SchmidT-Lemaître Explorer Ground Telescope "

Dr. Boon Kok Tan

Department of Physics (Astrophysics), University of Oxford, Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford, OX1 3RH, Great Britain

for his project "Planar Circuit-on-chip Technologies Enabling Large Spectroscopic Mapper for Sub-Millimetre Astronomy".
