TÜBA Academy Prizes Call for Nominations

Turkish Academy of Sciences has launched “TÜBA Academy Prizes in appreciation and encouragement of eminent scientists.

TÜBA Academy Prizes are annually awarded to three of the nominated scientists each being in one of the following categories of sciences namely 1) Basic and Engineering sciences, 2) Health and Life sciences and 3) Social Sciences and Humanities. Every year one of the prizes is awarded to scientists with Turkish connection, meaning those who work in Turkey and/or study Turkey. Academy Prize in Social Sciences and Humanities is designated as the Turkish connection prize for this year.

TÜBA Academy Prizes are given to those scientists with ORIGINAL, LEADING and PATH-BREAKING works in their fields. Nominations are made by TÜBA members, academies and inter-academy organizations with which TÜBA is in cooperation and other science institutions and scientists invited as nominators. Members of TÜBA and those who take part in the evaluation process of the prizes cannot be nominated.

The nominees are evaluated by a Prize Committee in each category. The Committees, composed of TÜBA members and renowned scientists, examine the works of the candidates via a rigorous process involving peer-review and identify the possible prize laureates. The laureates are announced by the Academy Council of TÜBA. The Academy Prizes, comprising an Academy Medal and prize money of USD 30.000 for each, are awarded in a special ceremony.

Nominations for 2015 Academy Prizes are open till 15 September 2015 and the laureates will be announced by the end of November. The Prize Ceremony will be held in the first half of December 2015.

We would like to invite our sister academies, with which TÜBA is in cooperation via bilateral agreements or through inter-academy organizations, to nominate an outstanding scientist with original, leading and path-breaking works for each category of TÜBA Academy Prizes. Please provide us with a full CV of the nominee and a statement of reason for nominations.
