Interview with Professor Flemming Besenbacher

At a special ceremony held in Beijing on January 18, 2012, the first Scandinavian received the Award for International Scientific Cooperation from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

The award was given to Prof. Flemming Besenbacher, leader of the Danish-Chinese Centre for Self-Assembly and Function of Molecular Nanostructures on Surfaces. From taking on the first Chinese doctoral student from the CAS Institute of Chemistry in the early 1990s to successfully advocating the launch of a Sino-Danish education center in 2011, Prof. Besenbacher has greatly accelerated the collaboration between his group and CAS, and pushed Sino-Danish scientific cooperation to an unprecedented high level.
