Associate Professor Mads Brandbyge from DTU Nanotech has just received one of this year's five EliteForsk Awards presented by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science to reward and draw attention to the work of some of most talented researchers in Denmark.
Over the past 20 years, Mads Brandbyge has conducted research into the design of nanoelectronics.

"The EliteForsk Award is one of the most significant marks of quality that young researchers can achieve in Denmark. The award is an acknowledgement of their exceptional talent and great effort. All five recipients are distinguished representatives of Danish research and testify to the fact that we are among the best when talent is combined with ambition and dedication. I look forward to following their work in the future," says the newly appointed Minister for Higher Education and Science, Sofie Carsen Nielsen.
