The Integrated Assessment Consortium (IAMC) solicits nominations for the Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA) and the Award for Extraordinary Contributions to the field of IAM (ECA).
The Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA) is given for exceptional lifetime achievement in integrated assessment modeling. It recognises those who have devoted themselves productively and persistently to enriching our endowment of knowledge in integrated assessment modeling and/or communicating the methods and results of this discipline. The award is for a consistent lifelong contribution that has helped to shape the community either scientifically or as a network (and is thus not meant for individual contributions in a period of time or for a specific subject matter). Potential awardees are considered every year, but it is not expected that the award be given on a regular basis: it is given only in special cases. The LAA Award can be given only once to a single person.
The Award for Extraordinary Contributions to the field of IAM (ECA) is given for a specific extraordinary contribution during the past two years. It recognises those who have made outstanding scientific contributions to the field of IAM, and/or have made significant contributions to the IAM community formation, and/or have increased the impact of the IAM community. The prize is in principle awarded every year, but only if one or more awardees deserving the prize were nominated. The ECA Award can in principle only be awarded once to a single person.
Nominations are open to all representatives of IAMC members, at an individual level (thus multiple nominations from members from the same institution are accepted). Self-nominations are not accepted. Nominations are submitted confidentially to the Secretariat and will be treated as strictly confidential by the Evaluation Committee and the Secretariat. Nominations will be automatically disqualified in the event they are made public by the submitting party before a decision has been taken. Submissions include an explanation supporting the nomination. Nominations are sent by filling in the nomination form by October 15th, 2020.
