Alfio Quarteroni Receives Prestigious 2024 Ritz-Galerkin Medal for Contributions to Computational Methods in Applied Sciences

It is with great pride that we announce that Professor Alfio Quarteroni has been awarded the 2024 Ritz-Galerkin Medal for his exceptional and enduring contributions to computational methods in applied sciences. This accolade, conferred by the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS), represents the pinnacle of recognition in the field, celebrating individuals whose work has significantly advanced computational methods over extensive periods of their careers.

The Ritz-Galerkin Medal is awarded every four years and honors outstanding, sustained contributions to computational methods in applied sciences. The medal commemorates the legacy of Walter Ritz and Boris Galerkin, pioneers in the synergy between mathematics, numerical analysis, mechanics of solids and structures, fluid dynamics, and other engineering disciplines that form the foundation of computational methods.

Professor Quarteroni’s work epitomizes this synergy. His research has profoundly impacted the development and application of computational methods, influencing a wide array of scientific and engineering fields. His dedication and innovative approaches have set new standards and inspired countless professionals in the discipline.

The award ceremony took place on June 3 during the opening event of the ECCOMAS 2024 Congress in Lisbon. The event was attended by leading figures in computational sciences, who gathered to celebrate Professor Quarteroni’s achievements and his lasting impact on the field.




We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Professor Alfio Quarteroni on this well-deserved honor and look forward to his continued contributions to the advancement of computational methods in applied sciences.
