PRACE to announce winner of the MEP Award for ICT 2015


30 Mar 2015 Brussels - The 2015 Ceremony of the MEP Awards was held at the Concert Noble in Brussels on 18 March 2015. Anwar Osseyran, Vice-Chair of the PRACE Council, presented the Award for ICT to Paul Rübig, MEP.

Each year, The Parliament Magazine presents Awards to Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who have made special efforts or achieved outstanding results in their portfolio(s). PRACE sponsors the Award for ICT, as Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are critical to improving the competitiveness of EU industry and meeting the changing demands of its society and economy. This award recognises a MEP's tireless work in modernising public services and advancing science and technology.

2015 was the first year the MEP Award for ICT was included, and Anwar Osseyran, Vice-Chair of the PRACE Council presented the award to Paul Rübig from Austria, at the Award Ceremony on 18 March at the Concert Noble in Brussels.

The Ceremony was moderated by Vivian Reding, MEP and former European Commissioner for Information Society and Media.

Paul Rübig has been an MEP since 1996 and has worked extensively on the enforcement of intellectual property rights in the internal market, as well as on reducing roaming charges in the EU. He is also chair of parliament's science and technology options assessment panel, which carries out independent assessments of the impact of new technologies.
