The Institute of Physics has opened nominations for their 2020 Technical Skills Awards. Here’s what they have to say:
With the aim of raising the professional status of technicians, the IOP Technician Award highlights the diverse role of technicians in education, research and industry. The winner receives a prize of £1,000, a trophy and a certificate presented at the IOP annual awards dinner. We accept nominations for the Technician Award in the following categories:
- secondary schools
- further education and higher education
- national research facilities
We are also seeking nominations from professional technicians for Honorary Fellowship which is the highest accolade presented by the Institute of Physics to reflect an individual’s exceptional services to physics. Our community of Honorary Fellows have contributed to the advancement of physics through a range of means and serve as ambassadors for physics, physicists and the IOP. Are you, or do you know outstanding technicians contributing to physics in secondary schools, further education, higher education, national research facilities, business and teams?
