The Marconi Prize

“Selecting a Marconi Fellow is quite difficult…because we look for someone with great ingenuity, great intelligence and great success in science. But at the same time, we’re also looking for someone who has made a tangible difference to the community and to society at large.”

— Sir Eric Ash, 1984 Marconi Fellow
