In 2013, the European Physical Society [EPS] launched the Emmy Noether Distinction to recognise noteworthy women physicists.

Emmy Noether was an influential theoretical physicist, and a role model for future generations of physicists. The laureates of the Emmy Noether Distinction are chosen for their capacity to inspire the next generation of scientists, and especially encourage women to handle careers in physics.

The previous recipients of the Emmy Noether distinction are:

  • Prof. Sibylle Günter, IPP, Germany (2015)
  • Prof. Anna Fontcuberta i Morral, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland (2015)
  • Prof. Anne L’Huillier, Faculty of Engineering, LTH in Lund, Sweden (2014)
  • Dr. Rumiana Dimova, MPI Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam, Germany (2014)
  • Prof. Nynke Dekker, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands (2013)
  • Dr. Alessandra Gatti, Institute of Photonics and Nanotechnologies [IFN-CNR], Como, Italy (2013)

The EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics is awarded twice a year. The selection committee, appointed by the EPS Equal Opportunities Committee, will consider nominations for female scientists working in Europe.

To make a nomination, please email the following information to the EPS Secretariat:

  • A cover letter, detailing (in no more than 3 paragraphs) the motivation for awarding the Emmy Noether distinction to the nominee;
