Science Prizes - Stimulating Research and Innovation

Do science prizes stimulate research and innovation? By engaging the public and policy makers we want to discuss the impact of basic research on society, science communication, and the use of science prizes to stimulate research and innovation.

 In order to recognize outstanding scientific research, the Kavli Prize honors highly creative scientists. The Kavli Prize recognizes scientists for seminal contributions in three fields of science: astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience; promote public understanding of and appreciation for scientists and their work; and foster international cooperation among scientists.
