Francqui Prize

The Francqui Prize is a prestigious Belgian scholarly and scientific prize, awarded each year since 1933 by the Francqui Foundation in recognition of the achievements of a young (under 50) Belgian scholar or scientist. The prize is named after Émile Francqui. It represents a sum of 150,000 , and is awarded in the following three-year rotation of subjects: exact sciences, social sciences, and biological or medical sciences.

The prize is meant to encourage the further work of the young laureate, rather than crown the latter's career. He is also asked to organise an international colloquium in the appropriate discipline the same year that he is awarded the prize, which usually leads to an international publication which enables the quality of Belgian university research to be more widely appreciated.
