Institute of Physics awards

IOP Awards recognise teams and individuals who have made a substantial contribution to the development or reputation of physics in the UK or Ireland.


It is our aim to identify and honour  teams and individuals who are today making remarkable contributions to physics, and to encourage younger members of our community to greater success in the future.

Our medal portfolio spans all areas of physics, as well as contributions made to physics outreach, physics education, the application of physics and physics-based technologies.
