Nordic Geoscientist Award
The Nordic Geoscientist Award will be presented every second year in connection with the Nordic Winter Meeting. The Award will be granted to a Nordic geoscientist who has, in the course of his/her career, been strongly involved in the society around us, as well as in specific fields in the geosciences.
All members of the Nordic geological societies can propose candidates. A proposal should comprise ca. 500 words. A jury, consisting of the leaders of each Nordic geological society and the directors of each Nordic geological survey, will consider the proposals and prepare a written statement on its decision on the Award.
The prize will consist of a framed diploma and an engraved plate of stone. The winner will be invited to hold a plenary lecture at the Winter Meeting in connection with presentation of the Award.
All proposals should be sent to the president of the Geological Society in your country by 1 October 2015.
Best Poster Award
The best poster presented in the conference will be awarded with a stipend of 500 euros. The jury evaluating the posters consists of members of the hosting organizations (The Geological Society of Finland, The University of Helsinki) and invited members from other Nordic Geological Societies. All posters presented at the NGWM2016 are automatically eligible for the prize, and no entry is necessary. The award winner will be announced at D101 on Friday, 15 January at 1 PM, just before the Nordic Geologist Award plenary.
