Gulbenkian Prize is a series of prizes awarded annually by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. The main Gulbenkian Prize was established in 1976 as the Gulbenkian Science Prize awarded to Portuguese individuals and organizations.

Starting 2012, the Foundation started giving a special international Prize funded by an annual award of €100,000 each in the field of human rights called the Calouste Gulbenkian Prize on Human Rights.

The Gulbenkian Science Prize has now been restructured and is known as the Gulbenkian Prizes on Cohesion, Knowledge and Sustainability and three prizes are awarded in each of the fields

Gulbenkian Science Prize edit

The Gulbenkian Science Prize (in Portuguese: Prémio Calouste Gulbenkian de Ciência e Tecnologia) established in 1976 is an annual award to Portuguese nationals or those whose work has been carried out in Portugal. From 2007 to 2011 it was given in four categories, awarded annually every four years: Basic Sciences (Mathematics and Computing Sciences); Physical Sciences; Life Sciences; and Social and Human Sciences.[1] The prize was worth 50,000 Euros (previously €25,000).

In 2011 a new prize (€100,000 for the first prize, €50,000 for the other four) was awarded for five disciplines: Intercultural and Environmental Dialogue; Arts; Science; Charity; and Education.[2]

In 2017 three new categories were announced: Knowledge, Sustainability, and Cohesion, with prizes of €50,000 each.[3]
