The Dan David Prize recognizes and encourages innovative and interdisciplinary research that cuts across traditional boundaries and paradigms. It aims to foster universal values of excellence, creativity, justice, democracy, and progress and to promote the scientific, technological and humanistic achievements that advance and improve their world.

The Dan David Prize covers three time dimensions – Past, Present, and Future – that represent realms of human achievement. Each year the International Board chooses one field within each time dimension. Following a review process of individuals nominated for the Prize, by independent Review Committees comprised of renowned scholars and professionals, the International Board then chooses the laureates for each field.

  • The Past refers to fields that expand knowledge of former times.
  • The Present recognizes achievements that shape and enrich society today.
  • The Future focuses on breakthroughs that hold great promise for improvement of their world.
