The Fusion Road Show of Prof. Niek Lopes Cardozo (Association EURATOM FOM-Rijnhuizen, The Netherlands) has been nominated as one of the five finalists in the category “Innovative action for science communication” of the Descartes Prize for Science Communication. Beginning in 2004, the prize – with a total of 250.000 prize money – will be awarded yearly by the European Union for outstanding science communication actions, with the aim of stimulating broader public understanding about science and research. The prize ceremony was held on the 2 of December last year in Prague, in the presence of Dr. Janez Potočnik, EU commissioner for Science and Research, and Mr. Václav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic. In the “innovative action” catagory, the prize was won by a Hungarian initiative to help schoolchildren get involved in research. Among the prizewinners in other categories was zoologist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, for his pioneering work in the field of wildlife filmmaking.
