Later this summer, the Call for Nominations for the 2nd edition of the Barcelona Hypatia European Science Prize will be announced. The Prize, awarded by the Barcelona City Council in collaboration of the AE-BKH, recognises an outstanding researcher who has achieved a career of excellence at the highest international level in Europe and has made a significant contribution to knowledge, as well as a positive impact on society. As in the previous edition, the Prize includes a commemorative plaque and a monetary award of 30,000 euros, presented during a ceremony at the Barcelona City Council.

The second edition (2019) of the Prize will recognise a research career focused on the Life and Health Sciences (LHS), including biology, medicine, biomedicine, and other related fields giving support to LHS, such as biochemistry, bioengineering, biomechanics, biocomputing, big data and large accelerators machines, biomimetics, historical geology, paleontology, history and philosophy of biology and medicine, etc. Candidates for the Prize must be nominated by a Member of the Academia Europaea (MAE) (Nominator 1), from any Section, and must have the support of an additional MAE (Nominator 2), also from any Section. Nominator 1 can propose only one Candidate. The two nominating MAEs must be from different countries. Although nominators must be MAEs, the Candidate does NOT have to be a MAE, nor a native of a European country, but she/he must have developed her/his career mostly in Europe.

We invite you to check back for news of the Call on this page, where we will post the corresponding terms and condition and application form.
