Evgueni Burov, elected to the Academia Europaea in 2009

Evgeni Burov, Professeur à l'UPMC

Evgueni Burov, researcher and professor in Earth Sciences at UPMC, became a member of the Academia EuropaeaNouvelle fenêtre (The Academy of Europe) in 2009, joining a group of 2000 key figures including about 50 Nobel laureates from 35 European countries.


Director of the 'Lithosphere, deep processes' team at the Paris Earth Sciences Institute (ISTeP), Burov conducts research on the physics of geological processes (known as orogeny, the formation of basins and the dynamics of the terrestrial mantle) with a particular focus on the digital modeling of thermodynamics. His recent nomination to the Academia Europaea comes in recognition of his scientific work on the rheology of the continental crust and the digital modeling of the geological processes. “This nomination is a step forward in terms of international recognition of my work and over-all of the French Earth Sciences field at a global standard,” says Burov. He adds that he will strive to promote “French Science, in particular Earth Sciences, at a pan-European level, and European research and higher education in Earth Sciences at a global level.”


Created in 1988 in Cambridge, under the initiative of the Royal Academic Society of LondonNouvelle fenêtre, the Academia Europaea serves from now on as the European Academy of Sciences. Its missions include “promoting global research and European higher education. It plays an advisory role for national governments in the areas of research, higher education and academic life in Europe. It encourages international collaborations and identifies unique trans-European goals on research and higher education. Finally, it educates the public about the importance of higher education and research, particularly in living standards in Europe.
