he IOP Awards celebrate the excellence which we know is everywhere in physics – in research, education, outreach and application; in people at all stages of their careers.

IoP is inviting nominations for its awards. Those that are focussed on education, outreach and engagement include:

  • Lawrence Bragg Gold Medal and Prize For physics education. 
  • William Thomson, Lord Kelvin Gold Medal and Prize For public engagement in physics. 

  • Marie Curie-Sklodowska Silver Medal and Prize For distinguished contributions to physics education. 

  • Lise Meitner Silver Medal and Prize For distinguished contributions to public engagement within physics. 

  • Daphne Jackson Bronze  Medal and Prize For exceptional early career contributions to physics education (by an early career physicist). 

  • Mary Somerville Bronze Medal and Prize For exceptional early career contributions to public engagement in physics (by an early career physicist).

All medals come with with £1,000 cash prize, certificate, and there will likely be some sort of celebration, depending on Covid.

The IOP is holding a short series of webinars between 12-18 January 2022 to provide support to the physics community for nominations for an IOP Award.
