About Linus

LINUS was created in 2007 as a consultancy for Recruitment & Selection, Executive Search, and the development of executives and technical-scientific professionals, at first for the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical sectors only.

The name LINUS was chosen in honor of Linus Carl Pauling (1901 – 1994), one of the leading scientists of the 20th Century.

Linus Pauling pioneered the application of quantum mechanics to chemistry. In 1954, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on the nature of chemical reactions. Later on, in 1962, he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaign against nuclear testing.
