Taipei--Tang Prize Foundation board member Ovid Tzeng (???) spoke about the prize at a celebration marking the 20th anniversary of the Chiang Ching-kuo International Sinological Centre at Charles University in the Czech Republic on April 28, according to a statement released by the foundation.
Tzeng's speech mainly focused on the origins and aims of the Tang Prize, which awards accomplishments in Sinology, the foundation said.
Attended by major sinologists from Britain, France, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, and the Czech Republic, the event presented a perfect opportunity to bring the core values of the Tang Prize to the attention of the European community, the foundation said.
The Tang Prize was founded by Taiwanese entrepreneur Samuel Yin (???) in 2012 to complement the Nobel Prize.
Besides Sinology, the prize also recognizes achievement in the fields of sustainable development, biopharmaceutical science, and the rule of law.
The first Tang Prizes were awarded in 2014.
