The Breakthrough Prize Foundation
The $1.5 million donation to support this programme is a new initiative in the ongoing partnership between the Breakthrough Prize and ALLEA, which pursues their shared goal of promoting science. Each year, ALLEA helps to facilitate nominations for the annual Breakthrough Prize among its members.
The Breakthrough Prize Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to recognizing the world’s great scientists, advancing cutting-edge scientific research, and helping to create a knowledge culture in which everybody, especially the next generation, can be inspired by the big questions of science.
The Breakthrough Prize recognises the world’s top scientists in the fields of Life Sciences, Fundamental Physics, and Mathematics. Each prize is worth $3 million. The Breakthrough Junior Challenge is an annual global video competition for students to inspire creative thinking about science.
