The founders of the Prima Primissima Prize decided in 2007 to create an independent prize to support the younger generation. One of the first to join the initiative was the Hungarian Development Bank, which co-founded the Hungarian Sciences category for the Junior Prima Prize.
According to tradition, this year’s laureates were chosen by the authorities of individual scientific fields at the request of the MFB. The honor, bestowed for the 16th time this year, can be bestowed on scientists under the age of 33 who contribute significantly to the development of Hungarian science through their outstanding scientific work, international achievements, educational activities and community building activities.
in this year Attila Bodhi (astronomy), Eszter Fliszár-Nyúl (toxicology, pharmacokinetics), Zolt Horvat (psychology), Julia Carradi (medicine), Kesenovity Egon (chemistry), Laszlo Cook (Bio, Environmental and Chemical Engineering Sciences), Janus Martin Meyer (Technical Sciences / Energy), Kinga Mizarros Molnar (biology), George Tyring (physics), George Toth (Economics, Network Research) Recognized.
In the Junior Prima Hungarian Science category, MFB supports the winners with HUF 2 million each.
