Each year, Clarivate identifies the world’s most influential researchers ─ the select few who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade. In 2020, fewer than 6,200, or about 0.1%, of the world’s researchers, in 21 research fields and across multiple fields, have earned this exclusive distinction. A nomination for this research award requires the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for the respective field and year in Web of Science.

6 researchers from FAU have won this prestigious distinction in 2020, among them two from the department of materials science, Prof Patrik Schmuki and Prof. Christoph J. Brabec, who the awards in the categories “cross field” respectively “materials science”. Both are long time awardees in Clarivate´s list of the “Most Influential Researchers” or “High Cited Researchers” for several years.
