Announcement Spinoza Awardees 2014 on June 6
On June 6 this year, at 16.00 hrs, NWO will announce the awardees of the Spinoza Prizes. The NWO Spinoza Prize is a personal award for top researchers with international reputations. NWO requests selected persons to nominate candidates for this prize. A maximum of four prizes are awarded annually. The winners each receive € 2.5 million to spend on research of their own choice for five years.
An NWO Spinoza Prize is an honorary award for what the winners have achieved in their scientific career and an encouragement to continue doing excellent research. In essence the prize works as an impulse for scientific research in the Netherlands. Nomination can only take place at the invitation of NWO.
