Katalin Balázsi is not only a successful researcher, head one of the MFA departments, secretary and treasurer of the Hungarian Association for Materials Science and also for the Hungarian Microscopic Society, but she is one of the founders and current chairmen of the Association for Women in Science /its Hungarian acronym is NaTE/ .
For all of us who know Katalin Balázsi, it is no question that her work played a major role in the international success of this association, and as the president of NaTE, she deservedly received the first Nature Innovating Science Award in London on October 30, 2018.
The prize was awarded for the first time and to be the first awardee is a special honor. The prize money is $ 10,000 to be spent on implementing the association’s programs.
Congratulations on behalf of the members of HSM and we wish you success in your work Kati, both in research and in the Association!
