Nature Awards

Nature currently supports four awards. The Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science recognise key scientists who have made outstanding contributions to mentoring younger scientists. In addition, Nature supports the Eppendorf Young European Investigator Award, which is given annually to a young scientist who is chosen by an independent scientific panel. Finally, the Nature Research Awards for Inspiring Science and for Innovating Science, in partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies, recognise inspirational early-career female researchers and those who have worked to champion women and girls’ participation in science.
