On Monday, January 13, 2014, Aleksandar Protic and Djordje Djurdjevic delivered The Tesla Award and the Cross-cultural Ambassador certificate to Prof. Robert Curl (Nobel Prize in chemistry), in the historic Smalley-Curl Room at Rice University, USA.
The Tesla Award is given by the Tesla Forum where Aleksandar Protic directed scientific program and was a member of Award jury.
Prof. Curl was also named a UNESCO Cross-Cultural Ambassador jointly by the Sorbonne University and MIT UNESCO clubs.
The Cross-cultural Ambassadors are committed and have generously contributed to the understanding and intercultural communication, making important contribution in the following fields: education, culture, science and communication and information. The honorary title of Cross-cultural Ambassadors is reserved for individuals who have distinguished themselves in favor of multiculturalism, but can also reward a great personal commitment to human rights, peace and social justice and to greet an exemplary career.
Tesla Memory Project would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to Professor Robert Curl, Rice University Smalley Institute Director of Operations – John Marsh and Interim Faculty Director – Daniel Mittleman.
