Encouraging interdisciplinary excellence

IAST strives to create bridges between disciplines. To facilitate cross-disciplinary fertilization, we launched a prize in 2016, in recognition of outstanding multidisciplinary research projects.

The prize was shared in both 2016 and in 2017 between two teams.
