Awarding of the Einstein - Medal 2020

The public ceremony, announced for 27 May 2020, is postponed until further notice.

The Albert Einstein Society Berne awards its 2020 Einstein Medal to the international collaboration of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) in recognition of the groundbreaking imaging of the shadow of the supermassive black hole in the center of the distant galaxy Messier M87.

The collaboration, consisting of over 200 scientists from all continents succeeded, by employing interferometric methods, to obtain images of the shadow of the giant but far away object that arises from strong gravitational effects on electromagnetic radiation in the vicinity of a black hole.

This effect, predicted by Einstein's theory of general relativity, could be observed thanks to the worldwide network of eight existing radiotelescopes. This observation opens a new era of studying black holes and testing Einstein's general theory of relativity in strong gravitational fields.

During the public Einstein Celebration of the Albert-Einstein Gesellschaft  (date not defined) the Einstein Medal will be handed over to the representatives of the collaboration, Dr. Sheperd Doeleman, Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, USA and Prof. Heino Falcke, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Changes in 2019

At the general meeting of the Einsteingesellschaft on June 6, 2019, Prof. Dr. Christiane Tretter, University of Bern, was elected as a new member of the managing board.

From 1 January 2019, the Einstein House will be managed by Tatsiana Widmer. The previous director Jürg Rub retires after 13 years for age reasons.

Under his direction, the memorial at Kramgasse 49 was able to attract a massive increase in visitors. The Executive Board of the Albert Einstein Society thanks Jürg Rub for his great commitment and is pleased to have found a highly qualified successor in Tatsiana Widmer.
