“This comes as a complete surprise,” confesses Professor Christophe Copéret. “Never would I have imagined to win this award.” No one spoke to him about the Max Rössler Prize, or mentioned a possible nomination. He is this year’s winner: ETH President Lino Guzzella presented the Max Rössler Prize 2016 to the chemist during the Thanks Giving event on Wednesday.
