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.

The 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 carried out in Europe, and may be given for either pure or applied research.

The Prize Ceremony and Lecture are highlights of the EPS CMD General Conference, organised every 2 years. For more information on where the conference is organised, please visit the CMD 25-JMC 14 conference website (former conference: CMD 24).
