ICES is comprised of numerous ambitious, talented, and dedicated individuals, all of whom play their part in the organization's ongoing work and the development of scientific knowledge and advice. Each year, in appreciation of this, recognition is given to those who've made standout contributions to ICES and marine science. That could mean either a colleague or working group member without whom noteworthy scientific work couldn't have been conducted or someone whose influence, leadership, or inspiration deserves to be acknowledged.
Nominations are now being solicited for one of the most prestigious and renowned accolades: the Outstanding Achievement Award. This award, which will be presented during a ceremony in September at the ICES Annual Science Conference in Riga, Latvia, is presented annually and always goes to someone within the ICES community.
The award recognizes a person whose career has been marked by a continued high level of commitment to excellence in science, research, and leadership. The nominee will have made contributions to ICES in the field of marine science or management over a significant period of time.
