RUSNANO Supervisory Council has approved the Prize Committee of Nanotechnology International Prize

Russia | Posted on April 5th, 2009

Nanotechnology International Prize is a unique international award. For the first time the prize will be awarded not only for nanotechnology scientific discoveries and innovations but for their application to mass production.

The Prize will be awarded on a yearly basis in one of the following fields:


  • NanoElectronics;
  • NanoBiotechnology;
  • NanoMaterials;
  • NanoDiagnostics.

In 2009 the Prize will be awarded for developments and their practical implementing in the field of NanoElectronics.

In 2009 the monetary fund of the Prize will be exceed 80 000USD and in future it will make up to 500 000USD. Researchers, scientists and developers (up to three people) being the authors of scientific-technological discovery or discoveries on one topic or one field that have been applied to production will be awarded by monetary part of the Prize, Prize symbol, Prize Honorary Diploma and Winner's pin.

The company being the first to apply the discovery (discoveries) to mass production or having reached maximum commercial success through the application of the discovery (discoveries) will be awarded by Prize Honorary Diploma and Prize Symbol.

The decision regarding the winners will be made by Department of Nanotechnologies and Information Technologies of Russian Academy of Sciences, International Advisory Board, the Expert Group and the Prize Directorate.
