    The Quantum ESPRESSO prize

    The Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation, in collaboration with Eurotech, announces the establishment of the Quantum ESPRESSO prize for quantum mechanical materials modeling. The prize, which consists of a diploma and a check of one thousand euros, will be awarded annually in January to recognize outstanding doctoral thesis research in the field of quantum mechanical materials modeling, realized with the help of the Quantum ESPRESSO suite of computer codes. Excellence will be rewarded for both original applications and methodological innovation.
