Purpose of the Award

The uses of radiation require the education and training of qualified scientists and professionals in the field of radiation protection and safety to ensure high competences in this field. The purpose of this award is therefore to promote the undertaking of investigation effort by young scientists and professionals working in radiation protection in all its fields of competence. Also, there should be important opportunity to present the work in an oral form to an experienced audience of experts and peers.

This award is created as a prize for work done by young scientists and professionals, in order to help promote the interest and expertise of the new generations in the field of radiation protection in the different regions, rewarding dedication and excellence. It also aims to encourage youth participation in the activities of the Associate Societies of Radiation Protection around the world, consistent with the objectives of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA).

To qualify for this distinction young scientists and professionals are required to:

  • be under 35 years, or in exceptional cases if the candidate is older, be in the first five years of their career in radiation protection
  • be the main author of a paper whose abstract has been approved by the Scientific Committee or Board of the candidate’s Radiation Protection Associate Society in that Region
