EMS Technology Achievement Award

The European Meteorological Society (EMS) seeks to recognise achievements that are influential on developments of technologies and technical solutions in meteorology and related areas, have advanced the methods and technologies of environmental observing and forecasting systems and demonstrated the potential to impact on the field at the European scale.

Thus the EMS launched The EMS Technology Achievement Award in 2015.

  • The EMS Technology Achievement Award is normally awarded annually. A call for nominations will be issued in autumn each year and the award presented at the EMS Annual Meeting in the following year.
  • The Award is given in the form of a certificate.
