EMGS members are invited to apply for the inaugural HESI Innovation Prize – an unrestricted cash prize of $80,000 USD. The Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI) is an international non-profit (501c3) organization based in Washington, DC, with the mission of developing science-based solutions for a safer, more sustainable world.
In 2021, the HESI Innovation Prize will recognize an individual(s) who has helped to reduce disproportionate health burdens in underserved populations and/or to promote greater health equity via their work or efforts in one or more the following areas that are central to HESI’s core operations: 1) safe and effective medicines, 2) food safety and security, 3) chemical and consumer product safety, and/or 4) environmental quality and sustainability. The Prize will recognize impact achieved via research, training/education, and/or programmatic approaches.
HESI will be accepting applications from April 1 – June 30, 2021. Awardees will be notified of their selection by August 2021 and must be willing to give an online presentation about their work to the HESI membership.
