Norway | Posted on September 7th, 2009

The nominations will be reviewed by three committees of leading international scientists within each of the scientific fields. The board of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters will make its descision based on the prize committees' recommendations. The winners of the Kavli Prize 2010 will be announced by the Academy's President in June next year.

The Kavli Prize will be awarded for outstanding achievements in advancing our knowledge and understanding in the fields of astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience. The Kavli Prize for each of these scientific fields consists of USD 1,000,000. The Kavli Laureates receive a gold medal, a scroll and a diploma in addition to the prize money. The Kavli Prize will be awarded at a ceremony in Oslo, Norway in September 2010.
