Spinoza Prize

The Spinoza Prize is the highest award in Dutch academia. Each year, the Dutch Research Council (NWO) awards the Spinoza Prizes to three or four researchers working in the Netherlands who according to international standards are among the best researchers worldwide.
LUMC is proud to host multiple Spinoza Prize laureates.

The Spinoza Prize laureates perform outstanding and groundbreaking research with broad impact. They are an inspiration for early-stage researchers. The Spinoza Prize is a mark of honour for the laureate’s achievements in their scientific career and a stimulus for further research. The prize consists of 2.5 million euros and a bronze statue of Spinoza.
