Welcome to the Körber European Science Prize!

The Körber European Science Prize honors outstanding and excellent scientists working in Europe. The prize is awarded to research projects that show great potential for possible application and international impact.

Innovation leading to genuine breakthroughs can only be achieved by the most talented in each of the disciplines – with visionaries who are determined to go new ways and who perseveringly go them until reaching their conclusion. Their research needs freedom of thought and courage to be different. In the selection of the previous prizewinners, the Körber European Science Prize has paid tribute to both of these qualities in a very striking manner.

Prof. Dr. Peter Gruss
Chairman of the Trustee Committee of the Science Prize 2004-2014
