Recognition of a scientific work resulting from research carried out not with a view to a specific application but out of pure curiosity
With the Mario Markus Prize for Ludic Science, the GDCh would like to honor a scientific work in the field of natural sciences that is “playful”. The term “playful” is used here to denote discoveries that are the result of research that was not carried out with a specific application in mind, but simply out of curiosity about the natural world. “Ludic” is derived from the Latin word “ludens,” which means to play.
The prize, worth €10,000 plus travel expenses, will be awarded at a scientific conference.
◷ Due date for nominations and applications: May 31, 2024
