The aim of the award is to emphasize the benefits of the scientific cooperation between French and Polish researchers.

The award is based on nominations, including self-nominations. All active members of the Polish and French scientific communities can nominate a pair of candidates. The nominations can cover all sciences and all fields of research.
The prize consists of 15 000 euro for each of the two laureates, 5 000 euro as an individual prize and 10 000 euro as a grant for continuing the scientific cooperation.
The call for nominations is open from the 19th July 2019 until the 30th September 2019. The results and the award ceremony will complete the French-Polish Year of Science, at the end of 2019.
Each nomination shall refer jointly to both researchers (one working in Poland and one working in France), having both at least a doctoral degree, regardless of their nationality.
Nominations should contain the following:
- Acknowledgement of the scientific achievements made jointly by the two candidates resulting in strengthened scientific cooperation between Poland and France (maximum 5000 characters)
