A new biennial prize worth $1m – the Rousseeuw Prize for Statistics – will recognise pioneering work in statistical methodology that has had significant impact, with relevance to society.
The Rousseeuw Prize focuses on the innovation rather than on a single individual. This gives recognition to multiple individuals who made important contributions to it.
One of the goals of awarding the people who created such an innovation, is to promote awareness of the important role and intellectual content of statistics and its profound impact on human endeavours.
Visit https://rousseeuwprize.org for more info. The nomination deadline is 31 March 2022.
The Rousseeuw Prize is awarded by the King Baudouin Foundation (KBF), a large public utility foundation in Belgium.
