Harvey Prize

Harvey Prize
Awarded for Science, Technology, Human Health, and Contributions to Peace in the Middle East
Country Israel
Presented by Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

The Harvey Prize is an Israeli scientific distinction awarded annually for breakthroughs in science and technology, as well as contributions to Peace in the Middle East, by Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa. It was named after an industrialist and inventor Leo Harvey.[1] Two awards of $75,000 each are made each year.


Candidates to the Prize can be submitted by past recipients, Technion Senate members, and presidents of recognized institutions of higher learning and research in Israel and abroad. Generally, recipients of the Nobel or Wolf Prizes are not eligible for the Harvey Prize, unless the accomplishments cited in the nomination represent new or different work.[2] However, some scientists who won the Harvey Prize were later presented with the Nobel Prize, e.g. Eric Kandel and Shuji Nakamura.
