João F. Mano was elected Fellow of the European Academy of Sciences, unanimously by all members of its full General Board.

The European Academy of Sciences (EurASc) is a fully independent international association of distinguished scholars that aims to recognize the best European scientists with a vision for Europe as a whole, transcending national borders, and with the aims of strengthening European science and scientific cooperation. Another objective of EurASc is to take advantage of the expertise of its members in advising other European bodies for the betterment of European research, technological application and social development. With headquarters in Liège, Belgium, it has about 600 members from 45 countries, including 65 Nobel Prizes and 13 Fields Medal winners (www.eurasc.org). Portugal has now 8 members in this restricted list, and João Mano joins colleagues from University of Aveiro, also professors from the same department, distinguished as fellows of this prestigious scientific academy: João Rocha (first Portuguese to be elected in 2014), director of CICECO, and Artur Silva (2017), vice-rector of the University of Aveiro for the area of research.

João F. Mano had already been recognized this year with a prestigious Gutenberg Chair, promoted by the Great East region of France, and by two grants from the European Research Council, including an advanced grant (ERC-AdG).
