Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme prizes
The mission of Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme is to create the essential conditions for scientific research and interdisciplinary dialogue.
To support this mission the foundation administers and awards five research prizes that seek to support field projects and recognise high-quality research.
