Nine European universities have joined forces in Circle U as a European alliance, with Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin as the German university. The network was established in 2018 to jointly develop competencies and solutions for keeping Europe and our planet healthy, peaceful, democratic and prosperous.

The Inter Circle U Prize recognizes outstanding examples of inter- and transdisciplinary research at participating universities. The three winning projects were selected in June 2022. The award ceremony took place today at the "Conference on Inter- and Transdisciplinary Research for Sustainable Development" at the Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium.

Robert Arlinghaus and his team received the award for their long-standing commitment to sustainable fisheries research, which always involves key stakeholders from research, practice and politics. The projects Adaptfisch, Besatzfisch, Baggersee and Boddenhecht are outstanding examples of how knowledge transfer to society can succeed in order to manage water bodies sustainably.

Congratulations on this award!


The two other prize winners are Dr. Manon Bajard from the Norwegian University of Oslo with the project "VIKINGS: Volcanic Eruptions and their Impacts on Climate, Environment, and Viking Society in 500-1250 CE", and Dr. Barbara McGillivray from King's College London for the project "The Language of mechanisation".

The Circle U universities: Aarhus University (Denmark), Humboldt University Berlin (Germany), King's College London (United Kingdom), Université Paris Cité (France), University of Belgrade (Serbia), University of Leuven (Belgium), University of Oslo (Norway), Università di Pisa (Italy) and University of Vienna (Austria).
