Oxford Instruments NanoScience is proud to sponsor the Nicholas Kurti Science Prize for Europe for research in physical science. The Prize celebrates its 12th 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
We are pleased to announce Dr Francois Parmentier from the Université Paris-Saclay, France and Dr Erwann Bocquillon from the Laboratoire Pierre Aigrain, France as the joint winners of the 2017 Nicholas Kurti Science Prize. The winners will be awarded with the trophy, certificate and 8000 Euros in total, at one of the upcoming European Physics conferences.
