Selection Procedure

IAAM forms a special committee that has the final say on who will be awarded with the IAAM Medal. To come to the final decision regarding the IAAM Medals, the committee looks at an individual’s contributions that have made during the ten years preceding the date of the selection. Over the last decade, IAAM has honoured hundreds of researchers from all over the world with the IAAM Medal. Moreover, for any individual who receives this honour, it is mandatory to deliver an IAAM Medal Lecture at the Advanced Materials Lecture Series.
