Gold Medals

The AINSE Gold Medal is awarded for excellence in research, based on publications over the last five years which acknowledge AINSE support. The AINSE Gold Medal may be awarded jointly to collaborating researchers and one medal is reserved for graduate students, including those who have recently completed their PhD projects. Nominees for awards are submitted to the AINSE Council by the Specialist Committees for consideration at the December meeting each year. Awards are usually presented in the following May at the time of the Council meeting, and at the presentation of the medal, Gold Medallists give an address on their research.
