Evens Science Prize 2007
The Evens Scientific Challenge represents an initiative to encourage cutting-edge thinkers and practitioners in science to achieve active social responsibility.

With a strong emphasis on questions pertaining to human life, its origins and future perspectives, the Evens Foundation targeted individual researchers with a genuine striving for taking science as a tool to improve aspects of human existence.

The Evens Scientific Challenge thus serves as a pragmatic vector to foster reflection on how original scientific thought and outstanding data applications can address contemporary challenges.
