The EPS CMD Europhysics Prize is one Europe’s most prestigious prizes in the field of condensed matter physics. It is awarded every 2 years in recognition of recent work by one or more individuals for scientific excellence in the area of condensed matter physics. It is currently sponsored by EPL, Europe's leading broad based letters journal.
work for which the individual(s) is/are nominated must not be
completed more than 5 years prior to the award. The award will
recognise research for which a significant portion of the work was
