Prizes and awards

Since the Middle Ages, awarding academic degrees has in particular been the university world’s recognition that an awardee has acquired the authority to teach within his or her field.

Since then, honours such as prizes, medals and honorary doctorates have been added as a recognition of the recipient's research results or other significance to society.
