KNAW: The Descartes-Huygens Prize

The Descartes-Huygens Prize promotes scientific and scholarly cooperation between the Netherlands and France. The French and Dutch governments established the prize in 1995 to draw the attention of the public and researchers to Franco-Dutch relations in science and scholarship.

The prize is awarded on a rotating basis to researchers in the humanities and social sciences, the natural sciences, and the life sciences. By agreement, the Netherlands selects the French candidate for the prize, and France selects the Dutch candidate.

The prize, a grant of EUR 23,000 intended to cover the cost of a French researcher's research residence in the Netherlands, encourages scientists and scholars to dedicate themselves to their careers.

Application deadline: Thursday 1 December 2011. For more information, see http://www.knaw.nl/Pages/DEF/27/206.bGFuZz1FTkc.html
