ICES Awards Committee is now soliciting nominations for the Outstanding Achievement Award.
Presented annually, the Award recognizes a person whose career has been marked by a continued commitment to excellence in science, research, and leadership. The nominee will have made contributions to ICES in the field of marine science over a sustained period. Although this often means senior scientists are put forward for the prize, nominations for younger candidates are also encouraged.
The Awards Committee judges candidates according to an extensive set of criteria including achievements, commitments, innovation in science, impact on advice, as well as mentoring young scientists.
The Award will be presented at the Annual Science Conference (ASC) in Riga, Latvia in September.
Nominations can be submitted online. The deadline for nominations is 16 May 2016.
Nominations for the Prix d'Excellence award, expected to be presented in 2017, are also welcome.
Adriaan Rijnsdorp received the ICES Outstanding Achievement Award from Pierre Petitgas, the Chair of the Awards Committee at the ASC 2015.
