Mogens Høgh Jensen was in January 2011 awarded the prestigious Gunnar Randers Physics Prize of Norwegian Science. The prize was handed out by King Harald at a ceremony in Oslo, May 5, 2011.

The quotation says: For M.H. Jensen's groundbreaking basic research on complex matter systems. M.H. Jensen has delivered outstanding contributions to many problems in modern physics, especially concerning phase transitions and critical phenomena, as well as in the theory of chaos, turbulence and complex systems. His works have lead to increased fundamental understanding inside many areas of materials science, complex materials, and processes in biological systems.
