JOŽEF STEFAN GOLDEN EMBLEM PRIZE
Each year at the end of March the Institute organises the Days of Jožef Stefan to popularise science and to mark the birthday of this great Slovenian physicist. During this event the Institute awards Jožef Stefan Golden Emblem Prize for winning PhD dissertations in the fields of natural sciences, and medicine and biotechnology.
Each year a maximum of three prizes are awarded.
