This week a new class of event has been added to the Calendar of Technical Events: Research Prizes.

Research Prizes are not strictly events in the sense of meetings but nevertheless they are events in terms of promoting high quality research. We see it as part of our task to bring these prize events to the notice of the IFRF Research Community through the Calendar of Technical Events.

Two events have been recently brought to our notice:

The European Commission has brought to our attention the EU Descartes Prizes for Research and for Science Communication 2005. Further details can be found at:


Mean while Prof. Klaus Hein, writes:  “I would like to draw your attention to the announcement of the highly valued:

Italgas Prize for Energy and Environment

 XVIII Edition 

The Selection Committee, of which I have been a member for many years, would like to spread the information in Europe and beyond as widely as possible”. Further details can be found at:
