The EMU Medal Committee calls upon the member societies and all European mineralogists for nominations for the EMU Research Excellence Medal 2021. The medal is presented to an early career scientist who has made significant contributions to research in mineralogy and whose professional and societal activities contribute to strengthening scientific links in Europe. Nominees will normally have completed their PhDs within 15 years (or equivalent once career breaks have been accounted for) of the closing date for nominations.
The deadline for applications is 1st of June 2021 to the Chair of the Medal Committee, Dr. Encarnación Ruiz Agudo. Please submit the nomination cover page and all other documents directly to Dr. Encarnación Ruiz Agudo.
The award ceremony is held before the medal talk given during an international meeting of relevance to Mineralogical Sciences selected according to the winner’s expertise. EMU will provide partial support for the travel expenses.
As a new initiative (since 2019), the medallists will receive financial support from EMU to present their research at several European institutions (who will apply for such lectures).
