The Heinz Hopf Prize is awarded every two years at ETH Zurich. The prize honours outstanding scientific work in the field of pure mathematics. It is named after the German mathematician Heinz Hopf (1894–1971), Professor of Mathematics at ETH from 1931 to 1965. The prize amount of 30,000 Swiss Francs (approximately US$29,000, €20,000, or £18,200 as of October 2009) is awarded on the occasion of the Heinz Hopf Lectures that are given at ETH by the laureate.

The prize was awarded for the first time in October 2009.
