Oberwolfach Prize

The Oberwolfach Prize is financed by the Oberwolfach Foundation and awarded in cooperation with the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach to young mathematicians. The prize is awarded approximately every three years for excellent achievements in changing fields of mathematics. The Scientific Committee of the Gesellschaft für mathematische Forschung e.V. is involved in selecting the prize winners from the nominations. The Oberwolfach Prize comes with an award of Euro 10,000.
