The CIUTI Prize is an award for out­stand­ing T&I-related Master’s the­ses. Orig­i­nally lim­ited to one win­ner, it is now awarded to the three best can­di­dates of one year. Nom­i­na­tions may be sub­mit­ted by any CIUTI mem­ber insti­tute and must be sup­ported by the respec­tive pro­fes­sors’ assess­ments. The final deci­sion is made by a jury within the CIUTI Board. Win­ners are announced at the annual Gen­eral Assem­bly. The first ranked lau­re­ate is the recip­i­ent of a 500 Euro grant to present his/​her project at the annual CIUTI-​Forum in Geneva.
