The Higgs Prize

An annual prize, named after Professor Peter Higgs, has been launched by Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond.

The prize offers outstanding young physicists the chance to win a trip to CERN and see the cutting-edge of international physics.

We’re delighted that the Government intends to introduce this prize. With £8.5 billion of the Scottish economy created by physics-based businesses, the prize is recognition of the vital importance of the subject.
