The award was given to the quantum physicist Hanns-Christoph Nägerl of the University of Innsbruck and the cell geneticist Gottfried Baier, the bioinformatician Zlatko Trajanoski and the developmental immunologist Andreas Villunger of the Medical University of Innsbruck. All three medical professionals are carrying out research in the field of immuno-oncology.  

The scientists have already received numerous awards for their work. Nägerl, who is at the Institute for Experimental Physics, was given the award for his research into ultracold quantum matter. The German-born scientist has made a name for himself thanks to his research on atomic quantum wires and molecular quantum gases. Baier and his team have discovered a promising lymphatic point of attack with their findings on the protein Kinase C signaling pathway. This enables the body to targetedly use its own immune system against tumors in order to heal cancer. Villunger focused on researching into molecular processes, from the creation of the cell until its death.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
