The IOP Awards celebrate the excellence which we know is everywhere in physics – in research, education, outreach and application; in people at all stages of their careers; in all parts of the UK, Ireland and internationally.
The 2022 IOP Awards recognise the achievements of individuals and teams in all aspects of physics, from pure research to the work of teachers, apprentices, and technicians, as well as those working in business and industry.
They celebrate people at every stage of their career, from those just starting out through to those at their peak.
Nominations for the 2022 IOP Awards have now closed. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions about the awards or your submission.
Data from past awards
As part of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), we have made available data from all past IOP Awards.
In the 2021 IOP Awards, we asked all nominees to submit EDI information along with their nomination in order to help us to continue to develop our Awards each year and ensure they include the whole physics community. You can read more about EDI in the Awards in this blog.
Committees and judging panels
The winners are decided by different committees and judging panels, which are each chaired by a Council Trustee. View lists of all of these committees and judging panels.
If you’ve got a question about the IOP Awards, you can get in touch with us at [email protected].
Awards celebration and prizes
We normally also celebrate the extraordinary achievements of our Award winners at an annual Awards celebration, however due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 we are keeping our celebrations under review.
