2020 Summer Edition Of The Emmy Noether Distinction

Posted By Administration, Monday 16 March 2020
Updated: Tuesday 17 March 2020

In 2013, the European Physical Society launched the Emmy Noether Distinction to recognise noteworthy women physicists having a strong connection to Europe through their nationality or work.

Emmy Noether, with her fundamental and revolutionary work in the areas of abstract algebra and on the conservation laws in theoretical physics, is an exceptional historical figure for all generations - past, present and future - of physicists.

The laureates of the Emmy Noether Distinction are chosen for their capacity to inspire the next generation of scientists, and especially encourage women to pursue a career in physics. Attribution criteria are based on research achievements, coordination of projects and management, committee memberships and teaching activities. The nominees should also be recognized by their peers as role models in the physics community.

The EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics is awarded twice a year, in winter and in summer.

The selection committee, appointed by the EPS Equal Opportunities Committee, will consider nominations of women physicists working in Europe for the 2020 Summer Edition of the Emmy Noether Distinction from May 2020.

For the present edition, nominations will be received until Friday, April 18th, 2020.

To make a nomination, please, email the following information to the EPS Secretariat:

  • A cover letter, detailing (in no more than 3 paragraphs) the motivation for awarding the EPS Emmy Noether Distinction to the nominee;
  • The nominee’s name, institution and email;
  • The nominee’s CV;
  • The nominator’s name, institution, and email.
  • Optional: No more than 3 support letters.
