Call for nominations: Gothenburg Lise Meitner award 2019

​The Gothenburg Physics Centre (GPC) is seeking nominations for the 2019 Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award.  Nominations are due on Monday, 4 March, 2019.
​​The Lise Meitner award honors exceptional individuals for a “groundbreaking discovery in physics”.  
In addition to their scientific accomplishments, the candidates must meet the following selection criteria:
  • They have distinguished themselves through public activities of popularizing science and are prepared to deliver the annual Lise Meitner Lecture (middle of September).
  • Their research activity is connected to or benefit activities at GPC.
Nominations should include a motivation describing the achievements of the candidate, a short biography/CV, contact details and a local contact person. 

We would also like to thank those of you who did make an effort to nominate a candidate in the past! In case your nomination has not been chosen, we encourage you to submit her or his name again. As the number of nominations has declined in recent years, we strongly encourage all members of GPC to nominate a candidate! Please think broadly! There are certainly outstanding candidates you either know personally or whom you would like to come here to Gothenburg.  ​
