Nuclear Industry Group Prizes

The Nuclear Industry Group award two prizes each year.  The purpose of these prizes is to;

  • To promote the role of physicists within the Nuclear Industry;
  • To promote innovation in the Nuclear Industry; and
  • To reward effort and commitment to advancing the Nuclear Industry.

The Early Career Prize is for physicists in the early stages of a career in the Nuclear Industry. It is to be awarded to the nominee who the judging panel feel has most fully displayed outstanding levels of innovative thinking, enthusiasm and determination in addressing a project or problem in their working environment.

The solution to the project or problem in question must have required the application of the skills and understanding that are expected from a professional physicist working in an industrial environment.

The Career Contribution Prize is for a physicist who has spent a substantial portion of their career in the nuclear industry. It is to be awarded to the nominee who the judging panel feel has most fully displayed outstanding levels of innovation and contributed to the progress of the industry over a sustained period. The nominee must have displayed outstanding commitment to the promotion of the nuclear industry throughout their career.

Their role within the nuclear industry must have required the application of the skills and understanding that are expected from a professional physicist working in an industrial environment.
