The Brain Prize, the world’s largest brain research prize, is Danish and is awarded by the Lundbeck Foundation. Each year, we award 10 million DKK (approx. 1,3 million €) to one or more neuroscientists who have had a ground-breaking impact on brain research.
The Brain Prize is awarded at a ceremony in Copenhagen, presided over by His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Denmark. The Brain Prize was first awarded in 2011 and has so far honoured 34 scientists from 9 different countries.
The Prize and associated activities are a celebration of outstanding achievements in neuroscience and are at the forefront of the Lundbeck Foundation’s ambitions to make Denmark a world leading neuroscience nation.
