Announcing the 2012 Call for Nominations
Beginning today, nominations for the 2012 Kavli Prizes may be submitted electronically at the Kavli Prize website. Nominations will be accepted through December 1.
The Kavli Prizes recognize scientists whose discoveries have dramatically expanded human understanding in the fields of astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience. Consisting of a scroll, medal and cash award of one million dollars, a prize in each of these areas has been awarded biennially since 2008.
The Kavli Prizes are a partnership between The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, The Kavli Foundation, 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, The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and The Royal Society. The selections of the prize committees are confirmed by The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. More Information.
