NOMIS Distinguished Scientist and Scholar Award

Since 2016 the NOMIS Foundation has been presenting the NOMIS Distinguished Scientist and Scholar Award to exceptional scientists and scholars, whose innovative ideas and approaches involve interdisciplinary collaboration and apply a broad range of methods, building bridges across the boundaries of the sciences and humanities. The foundation rewards researchers who choose to share their work and knowledge widely and who continuously look for new synergies and opportunities for collaboration. By funding and supporting these scientists’ and scholars’ highly innovative, groundbreaking research, the award enables their continued exploration of unconventional academic paths and supports NOMIS’ vision of “creating a spark” in the world of science.
