James Prize in Science and Technology Integration

Jonathan Lunine Cornell University

The James Prize in Science and Technology Integration honors outstanding contributions made by researchers who are able to adopt or adapt information or techniques from outside their fields, and thus integrate knowledge from two or more disciplines (e.g., engineering, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, biomedicine, geosciences, astronomy, or computational sciences) to solve a major contemporary challenge not addressable from a single disciplinary perspective. The prize was established in 2020 by Robert James and is presented with a $50,000 award. Preference will be given to early-career scientists and those whose work hasn’t been recognized by other large prizes or awards. Additional information, including past recipients, eligibility requirements, and more, can be found on the National Academy of Sciences website.
