Professor Moritz Riede has been appointed Fellow of the International Science Council (ISC).

Professor Riede has been awarded the Fellowship in recognition of his outstanding contribution to promoting science as a global public good. ISC Fellows will support the Council in its mission at a critical moment for science and sustainability for science as we enter the UN’s International Decade of Sciences for Sustainable Development in 2024.

As Professor Terrence Forrester, Chair of the Fellowship Council, explained, “the ISC Fellowship recognizes individuals who are ambassadors and advocates working tirelessly for science internationally and for the vital importance of evidence-informed policymaking. ISC Fellows hail from wide-ranging geographies, sectors, disciplines and career stages, and we look forward to working with them all in multiple capacities in the coming months and years.”

Moritz Riede is a Professor of Soft Functional Nanomaterials in the Department of Physics, with a particular interest in renewable energies, energy policy and organic solar. He has been a Governing Body Fellow of Wolfson for over a decade, having originally joined in 2013, where he also co-leads the College’s Earth Emergency Cluster (EEC).
