The Rigmor and Carl Holst-Knudsen Award for Scientific Research is one of Denmark's oldest and most prestigious science prizes.[1] It was established in 1956, on the birthday of Carl Holst-Knudsen, who was at that time the Chairman of the Board at Aarhus University. Originally worth 10k DKK, it has grown to 100k DKK in monetary value, and is awarded on 28 May annually.[2] It is given without application "as a mark of respect", to a researcher who has produced one or more significant results which show promise in future research.[3]
