NTU to host the World Cultural Council awards and inaugural World Academic Summit

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is hosting two prestigious events next week – the World Cultural Council’s 30th Award Ceremony and the World Academic Summit. These events will bring into focus the outstanding achievements of the world’s best and most creative minds, and bring together leaders and decision-makers from around the world to discuss the opportunities and challenges related to the development of future research and innovation.

Three leading scholars and artists will be honoured at the World Cultural Council Award Ceremony on 2 October 2013.  The World Cultural Council, a Mexico-based international organisation that promotes academic achievement, will present its Albert Einstein World Award of Science to Professor Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Royal Society (United Kingdom), and the Leonardo da Vinci Award of Arts to Prof Petteri Nisunen and Mr Tommi Gronlund in a ceremony on NTU's campus.
