The Technion, Israel’s Institute of Technology in Haifa, will award its 1981 annual Harvey Prize to two British scientists, Technion president Amos Horev announced.

The prizes, worth $35,000 each, will be given on June 21 to Prof. Sir James Lighthill and Prof. Hans Kosterlitz. Lighthill, provost of University College in London, received the award in science and technology for his pioneering work in fluid mechanics.
