The Occhialini medal and prize
In 2007 the Italian Physical Society together with the Institute of Physics instituted an award to honor the memory of Giuseppe Occhialini.
The prize has been promoted jointly by the two Societies on occasion of the Centenary of the birth of Giuseppe Occhialini with the aim to commemorate the eminent scientist as well as to strengthen the relationship between the two societies. The award is made alternately by the Councils of one of the two societies to a physicist selected from a list of nominees submitted by the other.
The award shall be made for distinguished work carried out within the 10 years preceding the award. The award is to be made to physicists in alternating years who work in Italy (even dated years) or the UK or Ireland (odd dated years). The medal will be silver and accompanied by a prize of €3000.
