Apply for Volvo Environment Prize 2019: Promoting Scientific Research & Innovations!

Deadline: 10 January 2019

Nominations are open for the Volvo Environment Prize 2019 that is awarded for: “Outstanding innovations or scientific discoveries, which in broad terms fall within the environmental field.”

The Volvo Environment Prize is awarded by an independent foundation. A Scientific Committee does the initial screening and evaluation of candidates. The International Prize Jury, a group of internationally renowned scientists, makes the final selection of prize laureate.

There are many outstanding biologists and environmental scientists among the laureates but the scope of the award is wide. The idea is to promote scientific research and innovations that in broad terms fall within the environmental and sustainability field.

Since the first award in 1990 the Volvo Environment Prize has become one of the scientific world’s most respected environmental prizes.

Prize Information

The Prize consists of a hand-crafted diploma, a glass sculpture and a cash award for SEK 1.5 million (approximately EUR 165,000 or USD 215,000). The award ceremony is in Stockholm in November each year.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The span of disciplines and activities for which nominations can be made is wide and includes all disciplines which have relevance to the environment. The research of nominees should be based on scientific grounds but must clearly show impacts outside of the specific discipline.
