Professor Marie-Louise Nosch receives Queen Margrethe II's Science Award

We are proud to announce that Professor Marie-Louise Nosch, one of the founding mothers of the Centre for Textile Research, has been given the honor of receiving Queen Margrethe II's Science Award at an award ceremony yesterday.

The award is based on Marie-Louises expertise in Linear B writing (Bronze Age Greece) which often describes sheep, wool, textile and weavers. This sparked an interest for textile as a research material, and since the start of CTR in 2005, textile research in general has been strengthened by an innovative interdisciplinary approach. Textiles, textile tools and terms for textiles have given researchers a new way of understanding aspects of history such as migrations, innovations and development of technologies.
