Research that qualifies for the Ammodo Science Award for groundbreaking research must be of internationally recognised outstanding quality and potentially groundbreaking.


Nomination & Selection

Each of the rectors of the fourteen universities that are affiliated with the VSNU may nominate one research project in each of the scientific domains. An advisory committee of renowned professors has been appointed for each scientific domain, which will assess the nominations on the basis of the criteria set out in the Regulations. Each advisory committee will propose one research project for the relevant scientific domain to the board of Ammodo. The board of Ammodo decides on the definitive granting of the Award.
