IASC Medals are awarded in recognition of exceptional and sustained contributions to the understanding of the Arctic.
A maximum of one award is made each year, assuming that there is a nominee of appropriate quality.
The award of medals is normally by the President of IASC during the Arctic Science Summit Week (or exceptionally at another major international meeting) following the ratification of the award.
Nominations for the IASC Medal 2014 can be submitted to the IASC Secretariat until 31 December 2013.
The Medal Awards Committee, composed of Carlo Barbante (Chair), Karin Lochte and Thorsteinn Gunnarsson, will consider the nominations received and the medal will be awarded at the Arctic Science Summit Week 2014 in Helsinki, Finland (April 2014).
A medal nomination form is available on the IASC website here.
