The international Meneghetti Award was established in 2010 by the Board of the Foundation and spread all around the world: from Europe to Russian Federation, from the Americas to China, Australia and Africa. The aim of the Award is to encourage projects in the realm of culture and scientific knowledge and to facilitate their implementation. Specifically, projects that contribute to the development of a humanistic ethics, as envisaged by the ontopsychological vision.
Every year, the Meneghetti
Award assigns 15,000 Euros for each of four areas of research: Economics,
Medicine, Physics and Philosophy. The inaugural edition of the Award, in 2011, saw its winners awarded their prize at the headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva.
This award emphasizes importance of education and research. For Meneghetti, humanism is responsibility; production and behavior intended to reach a goal. The concept of humanism is to serve and meet the needs and demands of humanity. The integration of humanist approaches into scientific work will promote global development. This approach, and thus, the Award, encourages creative and applicable research. It awards those who one day will master this knowledge and will be able to explore more successfully their field of research.
Meneghetti Award 2017 edition is presented in international universities. Each presentation is free and open to all, it is held by a teacher or by a delegate of the Foundation Antonio Meneghetti, who will illustrate the conditions for participation and a base of the concepts to develop in the research.
It is possible to organize a meeting to present the award to researchers and other interested people throughout the world. Those who wish to organize a presentation (booking a classroom in a college or similar location, promoting the presentation to students, researchers and supporting the event) can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
