Joan Solà Peracaula, selected for Honorable Mention by the Gravity Research Foundation
This year the ICCUB member, Joan Solà Peracaula, has been selected for Honorable Mention in the 2018 edition of the Gravity Research Foundation essay competition. His essay "Brans-Dicke Gravity: from Higgs Physics to (dynamical) Dark Energy" will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Modern Physics D (IJMPD).
Remarkable are also the 3 previous editions in which Dr. Solà was also recognized with this same mention. In fact, Dr. Solà has been selected for Honorable Mention every time he has participated in the essay competition.
The Gravity Research Foundation was founded by Roger W. Babson (1875- 1967) and the first awards for the best essays submitted on Gravity were made on December 1st, 1949. Since then, each edition has been a high level competition among scientists from all over the world, many times being the winners reputated scientists previously awarded Nobel Prizes.
