- The Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists
The Awards celebrate exceptional scientists aged 42 and younger working in the fields of Chemistry, Physical Sciences, and Engineering or Life Sciences. Honorees are selected by a distinguished judging panel of Nobel laureates and leading scientists based on the quality, novelty, and impact of their research and potential for future contributions to science.
In 2017, building on the tremendous success of the Awards in the United States, the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in the United Kingdom and the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in Israel were initiated.
To date, the Blavatnik Awards will have conferred prizes totaling over $13.3 million to over 350 outstanding young scientists and engineers from more than 47 countries, representing 37 scientific and engineering disciplines.
