IOM3 Publication Awards

The IOM3 presents a range of awards, medals, and prizes to recognise personal achievement for published work and for contributions to the profession. Awards are presented at special occasions throughout the year, and some of our award winners deliver lectures to which all members are invited.

Awards for published work span the whole field of materials production, processing, structure, properties, applications, and their inter-relationships. They cover scientific and technological aspects of the spectrum of material types including biomaterials and electronic materials. The awards are made for publications of particular merit, in the form of papers, or groups of papers, published by the Institute in journals within a two-year period preceding the year of the awards.
