We would like to draw your attention to four special scientific NWO prizes that are open to various researchers in the field of physics. With these prizes, NWO aims to facilitate research and knowledge utilisation at different scientific levels. The prizes are always presented to the winners during Physics@Veldhoven in January.

NWO Physics Prizes 2017
In 2018 the following NWO Physics Prizes 2017 are awarded during Physics@Veldhoven 2018:

NWO Physics Prizes in 2018

  • NWO Physics Thesis Award
    awarded to the best physics thesis.
  • NWO Physics Valorisation Prize
    encourages the utilisation of knowledge from physics research. The prize is awarded to a Dutch researcher (or research group) within the field of physics who has successfully managed to make the results from his or her own research useful for society.
  • NWO Physics Valorisation Chapter Prize
    encourages PhD students to devote a separate chapter in their thesis to the valorisation of their doctoral research. This prize underlines the importance that NWO attaches to valorisation and is aimed at encouraging PhD students to look out for possibilities to utilise knowledge from their research.

The deadline for submitting nominations for the three NWO Physics Prizes 2018 is 1 April 2018.
