Lorentz Medal

The Lorentz Medal draws attention to ground-breaking research in theoretical physics.

The Lorentz Medal is awarded every four years to an excellent researcher who has made an important contribution to the development of theoretical physics.

The award was established in 1925 to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Prof. Hendrik Antoon Lorentz's doctorate. Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1853-1928) was a member of the Academy. He was the founding father of theoretical physics in the Netherlands and won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1902.

The laureate will receive a medal engraved with the image of Hendrik Antoon Lorentz.
