About The Award

In 2009 the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports initiated the Milada Paulová Award for lifelong achievement for women researchers. The Milada Paulová Award aims to publicly and financially recognise the achievements of prominent Czech women researchers, shine a light on women role models, and inspire women researchers and students at the beginning of their research careers. 

The Milada Paulová Award is conferred for making a major contribution to a particular field, and this contribution takes into account the work of teaching, supervising student work, and cooperation with civil society and industry. Those eligible to be nominated are women researchers active in civil society or the academic and private research sectors.
