The Boris Mints Institute was founded with the intention to encourage research, planning and innovative thinking in order to promote a significant positive change in the world. BMI is focusing on designing strategic innovative plans to enhance the welfare of communities around the globe.
Starting 2017, BMI awards a $100,000 prize to an exceptional researcher who has devoted his/her research and academic life to the solution of a strategic global challenge and whose research public action and ideas had transformative impacts on global policy formation, as well as a proven contribution to the welfare of a significant number of communities worldwide.
The 2021 BMI Prize will be awarded to an outstanding academic figure, that stood out in fighting the Covid-19 virus. The prize evaluation committee will focus on the way in which the crisis was (and is) managed, in order to award the prize to a person who combines solid academic background with proven management skills and a far-reaching vision, that helped save lives in the management of the COVID-19.
The deadline for receipt of nominations is July 31, 2021
