The EMS Prizes 

The EMS Prizes were established by the Organizing Committee of the first European Congress of Mathematics in 1989, and were sponsored by Jacques Chirac, who was at that time the mayor of Paris.

Since then they are presented every four years at the European Congresses of Mathematics.

A total of 10 prizes are awarded at every congress. The award comprises a certificate including a citation and a cash prize of 5000 €.

The Foundation Compositio Mathematica and EMS Publishing House have kindly offered to sponsor the prize money.

Any European mathematician who has not reached his/her 35th birthday on July 5, 2020, and who has not previously received the prize, is eligible for an EMS Prize at 8ECM. The maximum age may be increased by up to three years in the case of an individual with a broken career pattern.
