Robert Bing Prize

The Robert Bing Prize is awarded from the fund established by the neurologist Robert Bing (1878-1956). The Prize is given, in accordance with the founder's testament, to scientists who have done outstanding work contributing to the recognition, treatment and cure of neurological diseases.

Eligible for the Prize are young scientists and physicians (up to 45 years) doing research in basic, translational or clinical neurosciences. Candidates should be Swiss or have been working in Switzerland for a significant amount of time.
The Prize is awarded every two years. The prize money is CHF 50'000.– for a single laureate or CHF 30'000.– each for two laureates.

Applications can be submitted by candidates or by the responsible of their institute or academic institution. Applications from female researchers are highly encouraged. Applications must be written in English and registered online. Details about the application format and submission procedure can be found on the online registration page once the call is open.


The next submission deadline is planned for Spring 2020.
