Learning Minds

The Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize

The Klaus J. Jacobs Awards were established in 2009, in memory of our founder, to honour his commitment to promote scientific advancement in our knowledge of how children learn and develop. 

The Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize acknowledges exceptional researchers who are making significant contributions in any scholarly discipline related to learning and development, or aimed at improving the living conditions of children and youth. 

The prize recipient receives an endowment worth 1 million Swiss Francs to support their research. 

The jury consists of a selected group of internationally renowned scientists working across a range of disciplines.
