The Grande Médaille of the French Academy of Sciences, established in 1997, is awarded annually to a researcher who has contributed decisively to the development of science. It is the most prestigious of the Academy's awards, and is awarded in a different field each year. Its creation results from the combination of the original French Academy of Sciences Lalande Prize in 1802 with the Benjamin Valz Foundation Prize in 1970 and another 122 foundation prizes in 1997.[1]
