Public Engagement - awards
The call for nominations for the Royal Society's Michael Faraday prize and lecture are now open.
The Royal Society Michael Faraday Prize and Lecture is awarded annually to the scientist or engineer whose expertise in communicating scientific ideas in lay terms is exemplary. Normally, preference will be given to a practising scientist or engineer, but other individuals whose primary expertise is in writing, broadcasting or other relevant forms of communication may also be considered. The award is named after Michael Faraday FRS, the influential inventor and electrical pioneer who was prominent in the public communication of science and founded the Christmas lectures at the Royal Institution.
The medal is of silver gilt, is awarded annually and is accompanied by a gift of £2,500.
Nominees must be leading scientists, mathematicians or engineers who are citizens of the British Isles or a Commonwealth country, or who have been ordinarily resident and working in the British Isles or a Commonwealth country for a minimum of three years before being nominated. Self-nominations are not accepted.
