Extended deadline for Descartes-Huygens Prize

The deadline for submitting proposals for the Descartes-Huygens Prize of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has been extended from June 18 to July 1, 2018. The prize, a grant of € 23,000, is open to researchers in all disciplines and intended to cover the cost of a French researchers’s research residence in the Netherlands. It encourages scientists and scholars to dedicate themselves to their careers.

The French and Dutch governments established the Descartes-Huygens Prize to draw the attention of the public and researchers to Franco-Dutch relations in science and scholarship. The prize is also intended as an impulse for further development of the scientific careers of the laureates. By agreement, the Netherlands selects the French candidate for the prize, and France selects the Dutch candidate.
