  • The 2001 Descartes prize for research: rewarding scientific excellence

    The second Descartes Prize was launched with a call for proposals on 15 December 2000. The seven projects highlighted in this section reached the finals of the 2001 Descartes Prize following a thorough examination by independent experts selected to cover the fields concerned (Basic Science, Earth Science, Engineering, Life Sciences and Socio-economic Sciences).

    On 26 November the Grand Jury convened to decide the winners of the 2001 prize. They were announced the following day at a high-profile award ceremony and gala lunch hosted at the Bibliotèque Solvay in Brussels.
