Professor Deliang Chen elected to the Chinese Academy of Sciences

News: Dec 20, 2017

Professor Deliang Chen is the August Röhss chair at the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Gothenburg. According to a news published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) on 28 November, 2017, he was elected as a foreign member of the CAS on 10 November, 2017, together with two Nobel Laureates.

Professor Chen is well known for his significant contributions to Science in the world and his excellence in original scientific research studying climate changes and their impacts on water cycle, notably in Tibet.

– There are many achievements I made together with my Chinese colleagues through the past 20 years or so, especially those from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS); therefore it is not easy to pick only one. If I had to, I would say that my I am extremely proud of being part of the CAS led international research program on the Third Pole Environment (TPE), and to have contributed to its sustained high quality activity which resulted in high impact research, close international cooperation, and long-term effects on sustainable development of the region which has had a strong impact on its surroundings and beyond.

The CAS is a national scientific organization consisting of three parts - a large number of research institutes, a traditional merit-based academic society similar to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and a high education system with three universities. The merit-based part of CAS serves as an advanced national think-tank to the Chinese Government on major science and technology issues.

Membership in the CAS is China’s highest academic title in scientific and technology fields. Membership is highly selective with 800 members and 92 foreign members across all scientific disciplines.

Professor Chen is also an elected member of several other Academies such as the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS).
