The Board of Directors of the Prof. Dr Marko V. Jarić Foundation has announced a call for competition for the Marko Jarić Prize for 2022. Parallel with the announcement on the Foundation’s website, the competition call was released in the ‘Politika’ daily newspaper. This prestigious prize, awarded with the support of the Institute of Physics Belgrade, has been dubbed the ‘Serbian Nobel in Physics’ by domestic media, while over the course of two decades, it has been bestowed upon an impressive number of most distinguished physicists, many of Serbian origin, who work at world-leading universities. The ‘Prof. Dr Marko V. Jarić’ Foundation, which presents the prize, was founded in 1998 to preserve the memory of the life and work of Marko Jarić (1952-1997).
The prize is presented to an individual or a group of scientists for outstanding scientific results in physics, and physicists from Serbia and the diaspora, as well as scientists in other fields conducting physics research, may put forward their nominations.
Last year’s recipient of the ‘Marko Jarić Prize’ is Dr Stevan Nadj-Perge, a professor of the California Institute of Technology, who was awarded for ‘outstanding contribution to the study of graphene-based nanomaterials’.
Individuals, scientific institutions, or associations may put forward nominations in writing for this year’s prize.
The application deadline is 16 December 2022.
Applications in the e-form should be sent within the specified deadline to the following e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. The Foundation has provided a template for the competition application.
The decision on the prize, consisting of a diploma and a monetary part, is made by the Board of Directors of the Prof. Dr Marko V. Jarić Foundation based on the Panel’s nominations. The award ceremony is to be held on 17 March 2023.
