Science Innovation Award 2015

Awarded during plenary on Tuesday 18th August

The EAG Science Innovation Award takes the form of a medal plus certificate to be bestowed upon scientists who have recently made a particularly important and innovative breakthrough in geochemistry. The geochemical research must be highly original and contribute in a significant fashion to our understanding of the natural behaviour of the Earth or planets. Such a contribution must be in the form of a widely recognized important piece of innovative scientific research published in a peer-reviewed journal. The recipient must be between 35 and 55 years old. More info
