Cristiano Giuffrida (VU) recently received an "Early Career Faculty Award" from VMWare: "for research interests and accomplishments poised to have significant impact within the industry and academia".
The Early Career Faculty Award program is intended to recognize the next generation of exceptional faculty members. A gift to the researcher’s university is made in support of his/her research and to promote excellence in teaching. Early career faculty must be within five years of their first tenure-track appointment. Giuffrida seems to be the second European recipient thus far. All other 29 winners are from US universities.
