Awards

 

The PRRS presents distinguished scientists from the area of radiation research with the Maria Skłodowska-Curie Medal and the PRRS Scientific Awards. The PRRS Awards Committee verifies applications for the Medal and the Scientific Awards, calls reviewers, and presents its nominations to the General Council of the PRRS. 

 

The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Medal

 

The medal was originally designed by a contemporary Polish artist Józef Markiewicz. In 1997 it was redesigned by a young talented artist Hanna Jelonek. The front of the bronze-cast medal boasts a profile of Maria Skłodowska-Curie surrounded by the words ‘sint sua praemia laudi’ (‘there are proper rewards for glory’). The reverse shows a graphical representation of the alpha, beta, and gamma radiations emitted by a slice of a metal imitating a radiation source, the name of the recipient, and the medal number.

The medal is awarded to Polish and foreign scholars for their outstanding achievements in the field of radiation studies and contribution to development of this research in Poland. The medallists are appointed by the General Council of the PRRS by a secret ballot.
