Description

The prize reflects the Brazilian government’s strong support for TWAS and, more generally, for helping to build scientific capacity in the developing world.

Such support has been reflected in the efforts of the former Presidents of Brazil Fernando Henrique Cardoso ( The World Academy of Sciences Fellow 1984) and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, and the former Ministers of Science and Technology José Israel Vargas ( The World Academy of Sciences Fellow 1988) and Sergio Rezende ( The World Academy of Sciences Fellow 2004).

President Cardoso and Minister Vargas played central roles in the creation of the The World Academy of Sciences-Celso Furtado Prize in Social Sciences.”

The World Academy of Sciences-Celso Furtado Prize is named after the renowned Brazilian economist, Celso Monteiro Furtado (1920-2004).

Furtado’s research focused on the plight of the poor in Brazil and throughout South America.

He emphasized the importance of devising economic development policies that focused on building a strong industrial base for what he often referred to as ‘peripheral economies’.

He also foresaw the rise of a globalized world, which he said would be spurred by ‘the spread of the world economy’, and he urged developing countries to take steps to ensure that they would not be marginalized in the face of these trends.

Nature

From 2012 for four years an annual prize of US$15,000 will be awarded in the field of Social Sciences.
