2014 Kavli Prizes in Atrophysics, Nanoscience and Neuroscience open call for nominations
Nominations Can Be Submitted Through December 1
The 2014 Kavli Prize call for nominations has been opened by The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. The Academy will receive nominations through December 1, 2013. Complete nomination information, including an online form, is available at www.kavliprize.no.
Science prizes for the 21st century, the Kavli Prizes recognize scientists for their seminal advances in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience. Consisting of a scroll, medal and cash award of one million dollars, a prize in each of these scientific areas has been awarded every two years since 2008. The 2014 laureates will be announced next year, with the medals to be awarded during a ceremony in Oslo, Norway.
The Kavli Prizes are a partnership between The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, The Kavli Foundation (U.S.) and the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research. Independent of The Kavli Foundation, prize recipients are chosen by three committees comprised of distinguished international scientists recommended by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the French Academy of Sciences, the Max Planck Society (Germany), the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, The National Academy of Sciences (U.S.) and The Royal Society (U.K.). After making their selection for prize recipients, the recommendations of these prize committees are confirmed by The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
