The subject areas in which the awards are granted are rotated, and this special characteristic of the Balzan Prize ensures the promotion and recognition of new or emerging fields of study or research.
The amount of each of the four Prizes 2016 is 750,000 Swiss Francs; the Prizewinners must destine half of the prize to finance research projects.
