Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize/Best Practice Prize

The Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize rewards scientific work of high social relevance to the development of children and young people. It is of great importance to the Jacobs Foundation that scientific findings from interdisciplinary research should be applied in practice. The Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize is endowed with one million Swiss francs. 

The Klaus J. Jacobs Best Practice Prize rewards the exceptional commitment of institutions or individuals who put into practice innovative solutions in the field of child and youth development. It is endowed with 200,000 Swiss francs.

The renowned awards are bestowed alternately every two years, the Research Prize in odd-numbered years and the Best Practice Prize in even-numbered years.
