Academic Excellence in Scotland Recognised with Announcement of Annual RSE Prizewinners

Some of Scotland’s most outstanding academic talent is being highlighted as the RSE reveals its 2015 Prizewinners. The annual awards are made to pre-eminent individuals who have reached the pinnacle of their discipline, and those who are showing great potential in the early stages of their career.

In addition to the academic awardees is Lord Smith of Kelvin, who receives the Adam Smith prize, one of the Society’s premier awards, for his business leadership and his outstanding contribution to public service, particularly the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

President of the RSE, Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, said, “This year’s recipients reflect the RSE’s Enlightenment spirit and its continued remit to advance learning and useful knowledge. I offer my warmest congratulations to all of them all.”
