International Prize – Thematic 2017

“PRIMATE COGNITION”

“One of the most fundamental features of the human species is our complex cognition.
The study of primate cognition has played a crucial role in elucidating how human cognition evolved by pinpointing the similarities and differences between humans and our closest living relatives.

The prize will be awarded to an internationally recognized scholar who has significantly advanced scientific understanding in the area of primate cognition in relation to the emergence of language, culture, and/or social complexity.”

The award for the International Prize is 60 000 €
