The Sir Martin Wood Science Prize for Japan is awarded annually by the Millennium Science Forum to a young researcher from a Japanese University or research institute who has performed outstanding research in the area of condensed matter science.
The Millennium Science Forum was established in 1998 to promote scientific exchange between Britain and Japan.
The prize is named after Sir Martin Wood, Founder and Honorary President of Oxford Instruments plc.
