The Rammal Award was created in memory of the great Lebanese physicist Rammal Rammal (1951-1991). It is awarded each year to an outstanding personality or organisation of strong scientific stature who, through their life and through activities pursued in a Mediterranean country has elevated the level of scientific exchanges or the perception of science in the region. Their work could be focused on fundamental or applied research, teaching, or the integration of knowledge.
How it works: Scientists and organisations of all disciplines may suggest names of nominees. Active scientists from any disciplinary background, including exact sciences, social sciences and humanities, are eligible. Organisations supporting similar objectives are also eligible.
The deadline for nomination has now been extended to the 1st April 2013.
