Restricted call: The Frontiers Planet Prize (Internal deadline: 31 October 2022)

Dear Colleagues, 

The Frontiers Research Foundation has now introduced the Frontiers Planet Prize, which encourages breakthroughs in sustainability science, to accelerate the development of the solutions that will restore and ensure a healthy planet. The Foundation hopes to achieve its mission by sponsoring this new international competition, that will recognise breakthroughs by awarding three prizes of CHF 1 million each.
The Prize will recognize, encourage, and reward exceptional scientists whose work could have a measurable potential to help humanity stay within one or more of the nine planetary boundaries detailed by Professor Johan Rockström, Co-Chairman of the Earth Commission, and Owen Gaffney, in their book and documentary on Breaking Boundaries.

For more information, please see the attached brochure.
