Two Israeli Scientists Win First Awards in Geneva for Research Work

The first awards of the Nassim Habif prizes, given for “theoretical or practical research work on cellulose,” were granted today to two Israeli scientists today. The awards were established last year by Nassim Habif, a Jewish engineer in France.

The dean of the University of Geneva Faculty of Science announced today that the first winners are Menahem Lewin and Avraham Lengyel, of Israel, for their authorship of a research paper on the practical applications of cellulose in industry.
