Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Dr. Khusniddin Olimov, professor of physics at Inha University in Tashkent (IUT), became one of 22 young scientists (younger than 45) from developing countries, who received the award of the World Academy of Science (TWAS).

Dr. Khusniddin Olimov received TWAS recognition for 2016 owing to his publications in prestigious international magazines on physics during the past five years.

The contest was held by Uzbekistan Science Academy and International Science Academy in two nominations “The best scientific publications in the fields of physics and mathematics” and “The best scientific publication in the field of chemistry and biology”.

IUT Professor became the sole winner of the prestigious award from Uzbekistan in 2016. It is worth to mention that 22 young scientists from 16 countries of the world got TWAS awards in 2016.

The President of the Uzbekistan Academy of Sciences, Academician Bekhzod Yuldashev handed over the award certificate to the winner.

Dr. Khusniddin Olimov said: “I am really happy to receive this prestigious award and contribute to the further recognition and enhancing of the image and ranking of Inha University in Tashkent not only in Uzbekistan, but all over the world. Uzbekistan is a land of talents, which produced many great scholars, like Abu Ali Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Abu Raihan Al-Beruni, Al Khorezmy, Mirzo Ulugbek etc., whose contributions to the world science was immense.”

“I believe that we, along with our talented students, have to continue this great tradition of our famous ancestors and contribute further to the development of science and technologies not only in Uzbekistan, but all over the world,” Mr Olimov said.

Rector of Inha University in Tashkent (IUT) Sarvar Babakhodjaev commented: “Inha University in Tashkent is very proud to have Khusniddin Olimov, who contributes to the development of science in Uzbekistan and abroad. This award once again proves that Uzbekistan has many gifted people and we should support them. Recently, the University launched a local faculty-fostering programme. In its frames, young teachers and academic staff of the university will study in prestigious universities of the world, including in the Republic of Korea. I think, this programme will positively affect quality of teaching at our university, in particular, and help to develop science in Uzbekistan, in general. In future, we hope that more scientists from Uzbekistan will become the prizewinners of international awards.”
