As part of its award program, IAAM presents IAAM Scientist Award & Medals to a number of worthy scientists on a regular basis in its award assembly. It is one of the many honours that IAAM confers upon the researchers and scientists working in interdisciplinary fields to recognize their work. Since the association has always been keen on recognizing the works of scientists at all stages of career, IAAM Scientist Medal is meant for the researchers who are fairly engaged in the world of advanced materials and have valuable contributions in their respective research fields. By conferring this honour upon this upcoming researcher, IAAM hopes to motivate them to continue on the path of producing ground-breaking research.
IAAM Scientist Award & Medal is awarded to individuals who have conducted a fair amount of research and created a professional impact in some interdisciplinary field. Even if an individual is working as an independent, he is eligible for this honour if he exemplifies enduring leadership and a vision for the field of advanced materials science, engineering & technology. Any individual across the world who meets all the requirements and has made some positive impact on the world of advanced materials is considered eligible for this highly regarded honour.
IAAM utilizes the IAAM Scientist Award & Medal to recognize the researchers in the field of advanced materials science, engineering & technology. There is a special committee formed that decides upon the names of the final awardees for this honour. The committee awards this medal based on the contributions made by the individual during the year of selection. In the last decade, IAAM has conferred this prestigious honour upon hundreds of researchers from more than 120 countries of the world. All the recipients of this honour are required to deliver an IAAM award lecture at the Advanced Materials Lecture Series.
