Tallinn University of Technology (Tal Tech) was celebrating its 100 year anniversary last week. The occasion was marked with a major ceremony on where, in addition to speeches, honorary doctorates were awarded. Among the honorees was AAU Professor Frede Blaabjerg who was awarded the honorary doctorate for his outstanding scientific contribution to the field of power electronics.
- By conferring the honorary doctorate on Frede Blaabjerg at Tal Tech we recognize the enormous contribution he has made to the international research environment in the field of power electronics. His contribution is in a class by itself, says Dmitri Vinnikov, Professor at Tal Tech who supported the nomination.
Frede Blaabjerg has already had an advisory role in Tal Tech's research group for power electronics, helping to implement a number of research projects. Dmitri Vinnikov hopes this collaboration will be strengthened in the coming years.
