Purpose of the Foundation
The Dr. Margrit Egnér Foundation was set up in 1983 and every year awards prizes to deserving authors of scientific papers in the field of “anthropological and humanistic psychology”, including the corresponding branches of medicine and philosophy. It thereby acknowledges both individual, outstanding contributions and lifetime achievements.
The public award ceremony is held annually always on the second Thursday in November. Following an introduction to the topic of the year, the three prize-winners give lectures on their areas of research.
