IOP Nations and Branches Prize
The IOP Nations and Branches Prize was established in 2001 in recognition of the voluntary contributions made by members to the work of their affiliated Nation or Branch.
This prize will be given each year to one or more members from any of the Nations or Branches who have made exceptional contributions to the activities within that Nation or Branch which enhances the promotion of physics. Nominations are made through the Chair of the appropriate Nation or Branch Committee and the prize is a certificate and paperweight. Such voluntary work is undertaken in their spare time and is rarely regarded as part of their career development.
