Pelagic Partners Commemorates Academic Excellence at Onassis Prizes Gala

On Tuesday, November 7, Pelagic Partners’ management had the privilege of attending the esteemed Onassis Prizes ceremony held at the historic Guildhall in the heart of the City of London. The event served as a platform to recognize and applaud the exceptional academic accomplishments of this year’s Onassis Prizes laureates.

The event, co-hosted by Dr Anthony S. Papadimitriou, President of the Onassis Foundation; Professor Sir Anthony Finkelstein CBE, President of City, University of London; Professor André Spicer, Dean of Bayes Business School; and Professor Costas Th. Grammenos CBE, Chairman of the Costas Grammenos Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance, in cooperation with the City of London, welcomed more than 350 esteemed guests. Among the attendees were ambassadors, leading academics and senior figures from the world of finance, international trade and shipping.

The Onassis Prizes 2023 were bestowed upon Professor Darrell Duffie, Professor Marc Melitz, and Professor Siri Pettersen Strandenes at the Banquet for their exceptional contributions and accomplishments in the fields of Finance, International Trade, and Shipping, respectively.

Throughout the evening, attendees were treated to inspiring speeches, highlighting the transformative power of education and research. The laureates, carefully selected for their outstanding contributions, shared insights into their work, providing a glimpse into the future of their respective fields.

By awarding leading researchers, the Onassis Prizes support those who envision tomorrow and make a step forward. The Foundation believes in the release of potential that ultimately changes the society. The Onassis Prizes are awarded once every three years to leading researchers in the fields of Finance, International Trade and Shipping, the very fields that Aristotle Onassis excelled in. The prizes, US$ 200,000 each, are awarded to academics of international range for the entire body of their work. The selection is carried out by a committee, comprised of prominent academics, among them two Nobel laureates.

The event concluded with a gala dinner, offering a platform for networking and discussions among like-minded individuals who share a passion for academic excellence. Pelagic Partners’ management engaged in meaningful conversations with fellow attendees. Attending the Onassis Prizes at the Guildhall was not only a celebration of academic excellence but also an affirmation of Pelagic Partners’ dedication to creating a positive impact through the promotion of initiatives that contribute to the advancement of knowledge and innovation. As the laureates continue to inspire future generations, Pelagic Partners remains committed to playing an active role in fostering a culture of learning and innovation.
