The Shaw Prize, established in November 2002, consists of three annual awards: the Prize in Astronomy, the Prize in Life Science and Medicine, and the Prize in Mathematical Sciences. It is an international award to honour individuals who are currently active in their respective fields and who have recently achieved distinguished and significant advances, who have made outstanding contributions in academic and scientific research or applications, or who in other domains have achieved excellence.
Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong Space Museum and the Shaw Prize Foundation have organised a special exhibition every year to introduce the Shaw Laureates and their outstanding contributions, as well as the basic science knowledge in the respective academic fields since 2014.
