Nominations for two of ICES prestigious awards, the Outstanding Achievement Award and the Prix d'Excellence are now open. These awards honour scientists who have made especially notable contributions to both ICES and the wider marine science world.
The Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes a member of the ICES community who has made ongoing important contributions to ICES in the field of marine science over a sustained period of time. This year we are particularly encouraging nominations for mid-career scientists for this award.
The Prix d'Excellence, presented every three years, recognizes a scientist who has made substantial contributions to marine science. To be nominated for this award, candidates need not be active participants in ICES work or activities.
Nominations can be made online before 1 May 2017. Both awards will be presented in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the 2017 Annual Science Conference (ASC). The winners are expected to be able to attend the ASC to receive the award at the opening ceremony and to engage in networking and mentoring of young scientists.
