GMP SA Photonics Prize 2019

Active on the Swiss photonics market for 40 years, GMP SA based in Renens and present in Zürich has decided on its anniversary, to contribute to the promotion of the Swiss scientific research in this field. To that end GMP SA for the third time in its existence, will launch a GMP Photonics Prize.


The prize will be attributed to an original research work done by a young single researcher (not older than 40 years) or a group of young researchers and that has been successfully carried out in a research institution based in Switzerland. The topic of the research must be related to the field of photonics. It must be either an original contribution to fundamental or applied research, a novel scientific application for industry, or an innovative product issued from basic or fundamental research. The jury will also pay attention to the industrial applicability potential of the submitted work.

  • A first cash prize of 10’000.- CHF will be awarded to the person or the team that has submitted the best work, and a certificate of award signed by the members of the jury. The entity (institution, laboratory, department) in which the work has been carried out will receive a gift certificate of 10’000.- CHF to be used for the acquisition of products that are distributed by GMP SA.
  • A second cash prize of 5’000.- CHF will be awarded to the second-best work, and a certificate of award signed by the members of the jury.
  • The jury can award at its sole decision a “The Jury Prize” in the form of a certificate signed by the members of the jury.

The submission deadline is 30th April 2019 24:00. The documents must be sent in digital form and per e-mail, to the secretary of the jury (cf. below).
