The list includes the world’s 3,000 most prominent names from 21 fields of science and social sciences, ranging from clinical medicine and neuroscience to agriculture, economics and physics. Of these, 56 are researchers working in Spanish institutions.

Sergei Odintsov is an ICREA astrophysicist at ICE (IEEC-CSIC) since 2003. His research focuses on cosmology, astrophysics, the experimental sciences of gravity and mathematics. He is the author or co-author of more than 500 articles in research journals (with more than 28,000 citations). Its main objective is to formulate a coherent alternative to Einstein’s gravity in order to solve the fundamental puzzle of modern cosmology: how and why does the Universe accelerate?

He is a foreign member of the Norwegian Royal Academy and the European Society of Physics, among others. In 2011, he was chosen by Forbes magazine as one of the ten most influential Russian scientists in the world and last year he was awarded the Amaldi Medal: European Prize in Gravitational Physics.
