IRPA 13 - Glasgow  >   Young Persons Prize

Young Persons Prize

Young Persons Prize

The Congress issued a special invitation and encouragement to younger scientists and professionals to attend as delegates. Whilst there was no formal definition of ’young’ in this context, it was intended to apply to students and persons in the first ten years of their career in radiation protection, and as such they will only exceed the mid-30s age in exceptional circumstances.

The Congress offered a prize for the best presentation by a Young Professional or Scientist. Candidates were nominated by their relevant IRPA Associate Society. The selected candidate from each Society was guaranteed an oral presentation of their paper at the Congress.

Prize Award: First Prize £1000 Jad Farah France
  Second Prize £500 Olaf Marzocchi Germany
  Third Prize £250 Natalia Shagina Russia
