 Wang Zhonglin was the first Chinese to win the Einstein World Science Award.


According to the Wechat Public News of China Energy Daily, on June 14, the Albert Einstein World Awardof Science Award of 2019 announced that Wang Zhonglin, chief scientist of Beijing Institute of Nano Energy and Systems, Chinese Academy of Sciences, president of National University of Science and lifelong professor of Georgia Institute of Technology, relied on his tenure in micro-nano energy and self-reliance. The pioneering achievements in the field of driving systems have won this world award and become the first Chinese scientist to win this honor.

Albert Einsteins World Science Award is a world-wide Science Award established by the World Cultural Council. It has been awarded once a year since 1984, with only one winner each time. It is awarded to outstanding scientists who have contributed to the benefit of mankind. Reporters learned that 35 scientists, including four Nobel Prize winners, had won the award. Before Wang Zhonglin won the prize, no Chinese had won it.

The selection committee of the World Science Award highly praised Wang Zhonglins scientific achievements. He believed that he had made a far-reaching and pioneering contribution to the research of nano-generators and self-powered energy systems, making the new technology of energy harvesting from the environment and biological systems a reality. He believed that this field has the potential to completely change every corner of our lives. I hope to change the world in the near future. The Commission also believes that these discoveries and breakthroughs have aroused worldwide interest and efforts in nano-energy and self-driving system technology in academia and industry, and believes that the marine blue energy technology invented by him may obtain a large amount of energy from the waves to meet the future energy needs of the world and will have a great impact on the sustainable development of mankind and society.

While acknowledging Wang Zhonglins contribution in the field of science and technology, the Committee also fully affirmed his achievements in the field of physics, believing that he first proved that the nano-generator originated from Maxwells displacement current, established the principle and technical roadmap of using mechanical energy to supply power to mobile sensors, and gave the first scientific explanation of frictional charged physics in 2600 years. It lays a theoretical foundation for triboelectronic generator.

In addition, the Committee highly appraised Wang Zhonglins personal qualities and academic level, believing that he was a natural leader, always very kind, inspiring, energetic, and had a positive impact on everyone who cooperated with him.

According to Peng Mei News, on September 24, 2015, Thomson Reuters released this years Citation Laureates in Philadelphia, USA, predicting that 18 scientists might win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Physics, Medicine and Economics in 2015. Professor Wang Zhonglin, a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, became a popular Nobel Prize winner.

A year later, Professor Wang Zhonglin chose to return home.

In the November 2017 issue of Xinhua, Dream of Returnees, Chinese Dream - Revelation of the Returning Tide of Chinas Largest Overseas Talents, Wang Zhonglin was one of the well-known scholars who worked in the process of returning to China. According to Bai Chunli, president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, talents need to be top-notch. As a public student in the 1980s, at the end of 1987, Bai Chunli returned to China after studying in the United States. There is no reason for returning home, no reason for not returning home. He said.

Bai Chunli brought the most advanced nanotechnology research to China at that time. Twenty-nine years later, he has become the president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has also brought Wang Zhonglin, one of the best scientists in nanotechnology research in the world, back to China. Wang Zhonglin is a tenured professor at Georgia Institute of Technology. He developed the worlds smallest generator, the nano-generator, and was elected to the European Academy of Sciences for his fundamental contributions in the field of nanotechnology.

This is the top talent that China is short of. Compared with more than 20 laboratories in the United States, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has provided him with a team of 200 people, with the same cultural background and good cooperation atmosphere - Wang Zhonglin House can not afford such excellent scientific research conditions. Return to China, Wang Zhonglin made a decision in 2016.

On September 10, 2017, the inauguration ceremony of the College of Artificial Intelligence Technology and the College of Nanoscience and Technology of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences was held at the International Conference Center of the National Science Dayan Qihu Campus. The Institute of Nanoscience and Technology is sponsored by the National Center for Nanoscience and participated in the co-construction of the Beijing Institute of Nanoenergy and Systems Research. Academician Wang Zhonglin, director of Beijing Institute of Nano Energy and Systems Research, is the president of the Institute, and Liu Minghua, director of the National Center for Nano Science, is the executive vice president.

Statistics show that Wang Zhonglin has published more than 1500 papers, including 55 articles published in NATURE, SCIENCE and its sub-journals; according to Google Scholar, Professor Wang Zhonglins papers have been cited more than 206,000 times, indicating that the H index of academic influence is 226.
