The program annually receives more than 6,500 applications worldwide. 18 were received this year in Slovenia. This years award ceremony for recipients - pharmacist Barbara Zorec, biologist Anamarija Žagar and chemist Mirjana Rodošek, took place in ZRC SAZU and for the first time the event was led by a man, radio host Štefko Bratkovič.
