The Abel Prize /ˈɑːbəl/ (Norwegian: Abelprisen) is a Norwegian prize awarded every year by the Government of Norway to one or more outstanding mathematicians.[1] It is named after Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel (1802–1829) and modelled after the Nobel Prizes,[2][3][4][5][6][7][8] the award was established in 2001 by the Government of Norway and complements its sister prize in the humanities, the Holberg Prize.

It comes with a monetary award of 6 million Norwegian kroner (NOK) (around 650,000).[9]
