Prix Schläfli 2020

The Prix Schläfli of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) is one of the oldest prizes in Switzerland. Since the first awarding in 1866, 115 young talents in different natural science disciplines have been distinguished for excellent articles resulting from PhDs in each of the following natural science disciplines:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Geosciences
  • Physics

The prize has the following aims:

  • Promote young talents (promotion of young scientists and support of academic excellence) in the different natural science disciplines;
  • Highlight the importance of young scientists in the Swiss research landscape;
  • Increase the Academy’s visibility in the Swiss science landscape.

Eligibility is limited to young researchers who did their doctoral thesis at a Swiss University, or Swiss nationals who did their doctoral thesis abroad. Candidates must have defended their doctoral thesis between 1 November 2016 and 31 October 2019. Nominations may be submitted by the candidate’s doctoral supervisor or by the president of
an SCNAT member society.

A jury is established for each of the four disciplines in order to evaluate the nominations. The prize consists of CHF 5,000 and support for conference participation in one of the scientific fields. The two best candidates from the disciplines of biology, chemistry, and astronomy will be proposed to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting Committee for participation at the meeting in 2020.
