The history of the EOS Prize

Thanks to Pierre Zaleski, the former administrator of Europtica Services IC (ESIC), EOS has received a donation from the capital remaining after the dissolution of ESIC. According to the wishes expressed by ESIC, this donation will be managed in such a way as to generate revenue to be used for an EOS prize to promote OPTICS in the widest form in Europe.
