Institute of Physics Awards

The Institute of Physics awards aim to build and reinforce a sense of community by recognising and rewarding excellence in individuals and teams who have made a contribution to physics in the UK and Ireland.

Our awards reflect the breadth of work in the physics community – spanning academia, industry, education and outreach. The award categories are broad and flexible, in order to attract high-quality nominations across all research areas – including new and emerging areas – and institutions. We welcome nominations that reflect and celebrate the breadth, geographic spread and diversity of our community.

Nominations open every year in the autumn and close in the winter. The selection will be made by IOP members who sit on the Awards Committee, appointed and chaired by the President who will report the committees’ decision to Council.

Should you have any questions about our awards programme, please contact the Groups and Awards Officer by email at or call +44 (0)20 7470 4800.
