Philippe Meyer Prize in Theoretical Physics

The Philippe Meyer Institute of Theoretical Physics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris has established an International Prize for a young researcher : the "Philippe Meyer Prize in Theoretical Physics". It is attributed every two years and aims at rewarding exceptional contributions to the field of Theoretical Physics.

The Prize consists of a financial award of 10,000 (ten thousand) euros in addition to an invitation to spend one month as a visitor at the Philippe Meyer Institute of Theoretical Physics.

A specific scientific field is chosen for every Call and the selection is made by an international jury whose names are published in the Prize web page after the selection of the laureate. Nominations for the Prize are open to all members of the international scientific community. Self-appointed candidacies are not accepted. The candidates should have received their PhD thesis less than ten years before January 1st of the award year. For women candidates an extra year is added for every child in charge. Persons holding an appointment at Ecole Normale Supérieure are not eligible to receive the Prize.
