About the Symposium
The Breakthrough Prizes are the world’s largest science awards, celebrated annually at a televised ceremony in Silicon Valley. The Prizes aim to celebrate science and scientists, promote a culture that venerates knowledge, and generate excitement about the pursuit of S.T.E.M. careers.
To these ends, the celebrations include a full-day Symposium in the three recognized fields of fundamental physics, life sciences and mathematics. Each year’s new laureates give short, informal talks about exciting potential developments in their field. In the evening, Breakthrough Prize co-founder Yuri Milner hosts panel discussions featuring laureates past and present, discussing broad scientific and philosophical themes.
Each year’s Symposium is sponsored by Stanford University, UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco, with the physical venue alternating between them each year.
This year’s Symposium takes place at Stanford University. It can also be viewed live on the Breakthrough Prize Facebook page.« Back To Main
