Prof Harald Haas is in the shortlist of finalists for a prestigious World Technology Award recognising his work on Visible Light Communication.
The winners will be announced from the stage of the United Nations at the World Technology Awards ceremony in New York next month. These awards are presented to individuals and companies who are, in the opinion of the judging panel, doing the innovative work of “the greatest likely long-term significance” in their fields. They are those creating the 21st century!
In the individual Communications Technology category Harald is up against some stiff competition from six other individuals from Bell Labs, Facebook, Yahoo and other prestigious companies. He is the only academic in this category and I would like to wish him all the best in New York.
