Photo courtesy of Tel Aviv University The Shaw Prize was founded in 2002 by Hong Kong media tycoon Run Run Shaw, who decided to award it annually to “individuals, regardless of race, nationality, gender and religious belief,” who have achieved significant breakthroughs in mathematics, astronomy, and life sciences and medicine, and have a “positive and profound impact on mankind.” The prize in each category is $1.2 million; Alon and Hrushovski will share it equally. The Shaw Prize was awarded to these two Israelis “for their remarkable contributions to discrete mathematics and model theory with interaction notably with algebraic geometry, topology and computer sciences.” In 2020, the Shaw Prize was awarded to Prof. David Kashdan of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. “Israel is a country that is very strong in the sciences in general, and in mathematics and computer science in particular,” said Alon. “The global standing of Israeli research in these fields far exceeds the relative size of the population.”
