Oxford Instruments NanoScience is proud to sponsor the Nicholas Kurti Science Prize for Europe for research in physical science. The Prize celebrates its 11th anniversary this year.

The objective of this Science Prize is to promote and recognise the novel work of young scientists working in the fields of low temperatures and/or high magnetic fields in Europe. Oxford Instruments is aware that there is a critical and often difficult stage for many between completing their PhD and gaining a permanent research position. The company therefore would like to help individuals who are producing innovative work by offering assistance both financially and through promotion of their research work.

All candidates should be nominated by a senior member of their department or Institute.

The prize is awarded by a committee of senior academics based throughout Europe.

The Nicholas Kurti Science Prize consists of:

  • 8,000 euros cash prize
  • a certificate and trophy
  • support to attend a conference in Europe

Please note: The opportunity to submit the nominations for the 2016 Nicholas Kurti Science Prize is now closed.
