European Court of Justice President to be honored in Budapest
ALLEA, the Berlin-based European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, will be holding an awards ceremony at the Ceremonial Hall of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) in Budapest this afternoon to honor Koen Lenaerts, the 2017 winner of the ALLEA Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values.
Lenaerts, President of the European Court of Justice and Professor of European Law at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, is to receive the award for his outstanding scholarly contribution to European law and jurisdiction.
The ceremony, as part of which Lenaerts will give a lecture entitled "The European Court of Justice in Times of Societal Change," will take place at the first joint annual conference of Academia Europaea and ALLEA on "Sustainability and Resilience," which runs at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences until Wednesday (September 6).
According to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal, ALLEA established the All European Academies Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values in 2014 to pay tribute to the intellectual and cultural diversity and richness of Europe, and to highlight how outstanding scholarly work in the fields of the humanities and social sciences contributes to the understanding of Europe as a cultural and intellectual entity.
