Each year, five Laureates - one per each of the following regions: Africa & the Arab States, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America - are awarded for their role and contribution to the advancement of science, in alternating years in Life Science and Physical Sciences.
For the first time, the 2019 edition of the Awards will designate five outstanding scientific researchers in the Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science. The Awards will be presented during the Ceremony to the five women selected by an international jury for their outstanding contribution to scientific advancement.
