The Tang Prize was established by Dr. Samuel Yin (尹衍樑博士) in December 2012 to encourage individuals across the world to chart the middle path to achieving their efforts in four major fields, namely Sustainable Development, Biopharmaceutical Science, Sinology, and Rule of Law. Laureates were selected on the basis of the originality of their work along with their contributions to society, irrespective of their nationality or ethnicity. The inaugural Sinology laureate was Professor Ying-shih Yu (余英時教授), while Professor William Theodore de Bary won the 2016 prize. In 2018, the prize was shared between Professors Stephen Owen and Yoshinobu Shiba (斯波義信教授).
