EMS Outreach & Communication Award: Call for nominations 2018

The deadline for nominations is 22 May 2018.

The EMS Outreach & Communication Award is given in recognition of projects that explore new and effective ways to communicate the science of meteorology, climatology and related fields to the general public. The projects may deal with the results or the consequences of science, and may also be targeted at a more specific audience. In particular, project teams will be considered for the award, but proposals of individual initiatives are also welcome.


Projects or candidates may be proposed by:

  • EMS Member Societies, EMS Associate Members and individual members of EMS Member Societies,
  • Individual members of the EMS Council and the Media Team,
  • Individual members of the select committee.


The documentation required for the proposal is a description of the aims of the project and a plan how these are to be achieved. An example of the realisation (a presentation, video of a presentation etc) will have to be included in the documentation and, in addition, a short description of the background of the project team (members) will be required.

Please submit any proposal in electronic format to awardapplication@emetsoc.org by 22 May  2018.

The Award

The Award consists of a trophy and a certificate.
The Award will be presented during the EMS Annual Meeting in September 2018 in Budapest, Hungary.
The documentation of the project will be published as an example of Best Practice on the EMS Website.
