The only international scientific award of Ukraine will undergo changes

On October 22, 2019, the innovations of the Ivan Franko International Prize in 2020 were presented in Lviv.

The fifth competition for the annual Scientific Prize will undergo significant changes. Starting from 2020, the prize will be awarded only in one nomination. This was announced by representatives of the Ivan Franko International Fund at a press conference.

“This is a step towards raising the prestige of the Ivan Franko Prize and increasing the competition of research papers. Although all current laureates’ papers have an extremely high scientific level, the future changes should further improve the quality of research papers,” said Yaroslav Harasym, Doctor of Philology, Member of the Ivan Franko International Fund Board, Professor at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.

There will be only one nomination “For significant achievements in the field of social and humanitarian sciences.”

The participants of the event also focused on the requirements for the research papers submitted for the competition.

“We have updated the requirements for research papers claiming to win the Prize. In particular, it is required that a research paper should be of importance internationally and relate to social and humanitarian disciplines. The research papers should be based on a scientific understanding of historical or contemporary processes in culture, politics and public life of Ukraine,” commented Dr. Tamara Smovzhenko, member of the Ivan Franko International Fund Board, professor at the University of Banking.

Director of the Ivan Franko International Fund Ihor Krus informed the audience about the innovation in the process of submitting research papers.

“The Committee will accept papers from  January 15 to  March 1, 2020. Applicants should complete the appropriate electronic form on the Fund’s website and send three copies of a printed research paper with their signatures to the Committee’s e-mail address,” stressed Ihor Kurus.

According to him, the rest of the accompanying documents remain unchanged, which is stipulated by the Prize Regulations. All selection procedures will also remain unchanged: from nomination committees, expert councils and to the selection of the winner by an international jury.

The competition organizers will start forming a prize fund this year and have already appealed to all Ivan Franko admirers to join this campaign. They also expressed Roland Franko’s gratitude to all benefactors, including those present at the press conference: Myroslav Khomyak, Mykhailo Tsymbalyuk, Prot.Bogdan MatviychukOksana Yurynets, Ivan Franko famyly’s from Toronto and owners of RESPECT Spa Hotel.
