Prix de la SSP

Le SSP attribue depuis 1991 des prix pour des travaux de recherche de qualité exceptionnelle à des jeunes physiciens. La SSP, avec ces prix dans différents domaines, octroyés par des institutions et des entreprises renommées, souhaite continuer à apporter sa contribution à la haute qualité de la recherche en Suisse.

Call for nominations for the Charpak-Ritz Prize 2020

The French Physical Society and the Swiss Physical Society have created a joint prize in 2016, the Charpak-Ritz Prize to highlight the tight relationship between the two Societies and to keep the memory alive of Georges Charpak and Walther Ritz who both have profoundly contributed to physics in their respective times.

The prize distinguishes exceptional contributions in physics or in its development to honour, in odd years, a physicist (or a small team of physicists) who has produced significant contribution in France, and, in even years, a physicist (or a small team of physicists) who has produced significant contributions in Switzerland.

We are inviting nominations for the Charpak-Ritz Prize 2020 to honour significant contributions achieved in Switzerland. The nomination file shall comprise the usual items (CV, laudation, list of publications as well as the most important publications, reference letters, …). Self-nominations will not be considered. The dossier shall be sent to the Swiss Physical Society in electronic format as pdf files with the mention "Nomination for the Charpak-Ritz prize 2020".

A short-list of the three best evaluated candidates will be sent to the French Physical Society, who will take the final decision.




Deadline: 31 May 2019


The award will be given at the annual meeting of the French Physical Society in 2020.
