FOM encourages 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 prize will be awarded for the last time in 2016 and will be awarded during Physics@Veldhoven 2017. In 2017 the new NWO organisation will award the NWO Physics Valorisation Chapter Prize.

The nominations for the NWO Physics Valorisation Chapter Prize can be submitted until 1 April 2017.
