What is the ECS Award?

The IACS Early Career Scientist (ECS) Prize is a bi-annual cash prize of € 1000 awarded to two early career scientists who have published the best scientific papers on a cryospheric subject as assessed by an independent evaluation committee. The objective of the prize is to recognize excellence in cryospheric science by honouring and promoting two ECS scientists, and to draw attention to the work of IACS.

Awardees must be IACS members by the time the award is received.
