The EPS Historic Sites Award commemorates places in Europe important for the development and the history of physics.
Sites with national or European/international significance to physics and its history can be considered for the Historic Site distinction from the EPS. Examples of what can be considered are:
Places (laboratories, buildings, institutions, universities, towns, etc.) associated with an event, discovery, research or body of work, by one or more individuals, that made important, exceptional contributions to physics.This includes places where instruments and/or apparatus were designed making significant contributions to physics and research.
The EPS Historic Sites Initiative is not meant to designate a residence or birthplace of noteworthy physicists.
The EPS will work with the nominators to obtain local authorisations for placing a plaque and in organising the commemorative ceremony.
