 FOM encourages FOM PhD students to dedicate a separate chapter of their thesis to valorisation aspects of their PhD research. This chapter should address issues like:
- how can my PhD work contribute to solving the needs of society;
- are long term applications of my work conceivable;
- which actions should be made to achieve this etc.
The FOM Valorisation Chapter Prize emphasises the importance FOM attaches to valorisation and aims to make  PhD students more aware that application of their research results can be of importance for society.   

The prize money is € 5,000; the winner is free to choose how to spend this amount. The Valorisation Chapter Prize is awarded annually during Physics@FOM Veldhoven in January. All (former) FOM PhD students who have since obtained their doctorate and who included a valorisation chapter in their dissertation may compete for the prize.

The nominations for the FOM Valorisation Chapter Prize could be submitted until 1 April 2016.
