Encouraging unfettered fundamental research
Fundamental scientific research is essential for extending the limits of our knowledge. The Ammodo Science Award therefore stimulates specifically fundamental science. The Award covers all scientific disciplines, divided into four fields: Biomedical Sciences, Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences
The Ammodo Science Award consists of eight sums of money, each of 300,000 euros. The advisory committee selected for each scientific field puts forward two candidates for the Award chosen by them out of all the nominations received within that field. Nominations for the third edition of the Ammodo Science Award can be submitted until 15 September 2018. In January 2019 Ammodo will anounce the laureates of the Ammodo Science Award.
The Ammodo Science Award is for outstanding, internationally recognised mid-career scientists working in the Netherlands who were awarded their PhD no more than fifteen years ago. In 2015 the first eight laureates received the inaugural Awards.
