The Heineken Prizes for Arts and Sciences consist of eleven awards biannually bestowed by Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). The prizes are named in honor of Henry Pierre Heineken, son of founder Gerard Adriaan Heineken, Alfred Heineken, former Chairman of Heineken Holdings and Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken, current chair of the Heineken Prizes Foundations which fund all Heineken Prizes for Arts and Sciences. Thirteen winners of the Dr H.P. Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics or the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Medicine have continued to win a Nobel Prize.

Organization[edit]

There are five science prizes ($200,000 each):
1. the Dr H.P. Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics [1]
2-4. the Dr A.H. Heineken Prizes for History,[2] Medicine[3] and Environmental Sciences [4]
5. the C.L. de Carvalho-Heineken Prize for Cognitive Sciences [5]

In 1988 the Dr A.H. Prize for Art was established to be awarded to an outstanding artist working in the Netherlands. The prize is €100,000, half of which is to be spend on a publication and/or exhibit.[6]

Since 2010, Heineken Young Scientists Awards are awarded to young talent in similar research fields as the Dr H.P. Heineken, Dr A.H. Heineken and C.L. de Carvalho-Heineken Prizes.[7]

Selection[edit]

The selection system of the Heineken Prizes can be compared to that of the Nobel Prizes. Scientists from all over the world are invited to nominate fellow scientists for the Heineken Prizes. The Royal Netherlands Academy appoints special committees consisting of eminent scientists and chaired by a member of the board of one of the Academy’s two divisions. Both members and non-members of the Academy are eligible for membership of these committees. An independent jury of members of the Academy, acting in a personal capacity, chooses the winners of the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art.

The Heineken Prizes are awarded in a Special Session of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, which takes place every even year at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.[8] In 2002, 2004,[9] 2006,[10] 2008,[11] 2010[12] and 2012[13] the Prizes were presented by HRH the Prince of Orange.
