MIMS Mimura Award

 The principal mission of Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences (MIMS) is to promote interdisciplinary research based on mathematical modeling and analysis. The Mimura Prize, founded in 2017, is now one of our major promotional activities at MIMS.

 This prize honors researchers who have made significant contributions in the mathematical sciences, especially those which deepen our understanding of phenomena through mathematical modeling and analysis, and thereby call attention to the importance of mathematical viewpoints in the study of nature and society. Every year, we select a small number of prize-winners and hold an award ceremony followed by lectures from the awardees.

 A new category within The Mimura Prize was created in 2021, which we call “The Mimura Prize for Excellent Young Researchers”. While the traditional Mimura Prize is awarded to leading researchers whose outstanding achievements have significantly impacted their research fields, the new prize is awarded to researchers near the age of 40, or below, who have made remarkable contributions in the mathematical sciences and whose research has great potential for further important developments.

 The award ceremony for the 2021 Mimura Prize in both categories will be held online.
