The NOMIS Distinguished Scientist and Scholar Award (NOMIS Award) enables exceptional, established scientists to continue exploring unconventional academic paths, thereby opening up new research fields and collaborations. NOMIS Awards are presented to pioneering scientists and scholars who, through their innovative, groundbreaking research, have made a significant contribution to their respective fields and who inspire the world around them. Their bold ideas and unique approaches involve interdisciplinary collaboration and apply a broad range of methods, building bridges across the boundaries of disciplines.

NOMIS is presenting this award to two new outstanding scientists at a special event in Switzerland on Oct. 14-15, 2020. The event consists of a series of public lectures by each of the awardees followed by a formal award ceremony, which is by invitation only.
