* Please note: The term "resident" does not refer to any politico-administrational status (i.e. holding a residency in country x or y). Rather, we intend to make sure the awardee will be geographically "close" for a sufficient period of time, so that he or she will be able to attend the award ceremony and to benefit from the prize package as much as possible. The minimum requirement is thus to stay in Europe at the time of the award ceremony.
