There are four prize categories: the Award for Young Outstanding Researchers, the Award for Outstanding Research, the Award for Excellence in Communication of Science, and the Innovation Award. The first of these is brand-new as of this year. The other three are well established.

The deadline for submission of nominees for the Innovation Award is 1 June 2016. The deadline for the other three awards is 17 June 2016.

More information about the criteria, nomination deadlines, juries and cash prizes for these awards is available on the Research Council website (in Norwegian).
