Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences
Awarded for  Global achievement in Basic Sciences

The Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences is awarded once a year by the Inamori Foundation. The Prize is one of three Kyoto Prize categories; the others are the Kyoto Prize in Advanced Technology and the Kyoto Prize in Arts and Philosophy. The first Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences was awarded to Claude Elwood Shannon, the “Establishment of Mathematical Foundation of Information Theory”. The Prize is widely regarded as the most prestigious award available in fields which are traditionally not honored with a Nobel Prize.

The Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences is awarded on a rotating basis to researchers in the following four fields:

  • Mathematical sciences (including pure mathematics)
  • Biological sciences (evolution, behavior, ecology, environment)
  • Earth and planetary sciences, astronomy and astrophysics
  • Cognitive science/Life sciences (molecular biology, cell biology, neurobiology)
