An Open Call

The Kavli Prize conducts an open call for nominations in the fall of each odd year. Up to five individuals can be nominated for their work on the same breakthrough, and multiple nominations recognizing different breakthroughs are permitted. Anyone can nominate, but self-nominations are not considered.

Independent committees of distinguished scientists evaluate the nominations and put forward recommendations to the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. Announcement of the next laureates is on June 1, 2022.

Selection committees

The Kavli Prize recognizes and values that diverse perspectives enable breakthroughs, and we are committed to recognizing breakthrough science worldwide. We encourage nominators to be mindful of the full diversity of the scientific enterprise and be attuned to gender, race and ethnicity, geographical region, and institutional diversity.

The next call for nominations will take place from September 1 to December 1, 2023.
