Each year, six pre-selected PhD students are offered the opportunity to present their research at the NMC. A committee selects the winner, who receives the KWG PhD Prize, the successor of the former Philips PhD Prize. The KWG PhD Prize consists of a trophy and a monetary amount.
The winners of the KWG prize - before 2014 the Philips prize - are:
|Erik Jan van Leeuwen||2008||CWI|
|Stefan van Zwam||2009||TU/e|
|Ruben van der Zwaan||2012||UM|
|Roberta Anna Iseppi||2014||RUN|
|Geoffrey Janssens||2016||Vrije Universiteit Brussel|
