The deadline for submitting nominations is Sunday, 31st May 2020. Please note that the Jury will consider only nominations received through the online platform and prior to this deadline.

The founding awards provide five leading female scientists, one from each continent, every year with a prestigious laureate of €100,000 in recognition of their ground-breaking achievements and contributions to scientific progress.

These women are at the cutting edge of their research fields. The international structure of the programme ensures that the laureates are representative of women working across a wide and diverse set of conditions. Since 1998, the programme has recognised over 100 Laureates, including three Nobel Prize winners, raising their profile and helping to advance their research.


The 2021 edition of the Awards will designate five outstanding scientific researchers in the Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science.
