Applications are now open for the scientific awards promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation


The “Italian bilateral scientific cooperation award” was established to recognize an Italian scientist who has contributed to the progress of science and technology by carrying out her/his research abroad (in Norway or Iceland), thus improving Italy’s S&T relations with foreign countries and international organizations. Now in its sixth edition, this year the award is dedicated to researchers under 35.

The applications, which must be sent to by 7 January 2023, will be examined by a Scientific Committee made up, in addition to MUR and MAECI, of the Presidents of the main research centers and the Conference of Rectors of the Italian Universities (CRUI).

More information on how to apply is available in the “Italian bilateral scientific cooperation award” competition notice.


The “Science, She Says!” Award, in its second edition, will be awarded to five young foreign researchers under 40 from 5 geographical areas (Africa and the Middle East; Asia and the Pacific; Europe; Central and South America; North America ), selected by a jury made up of representatives of the main public research bodies, the MUR and the CRUI, as well as the MAECI.
Applications must be sent to by 7 January 2023.
