The Lise Meitner Prize is awarded biennially by the European Physical Society (EPS) for outstanding work in the fields of experimental, theoretical or applied nuclear science.
The 2016 Prize Laureate is: Prof. Ulf-G. Meißner, Universität Bonn and Forschungszentrum in Jülich, Germany
Calls for nominations are still open for the following EPS distinctions and prizes:
– EPS Fellows
– EPS Honorary Members
– the Gero Thomas medal
The Nuclear Physics Division [NPD] of the EPS supports the advancement and the dissemination of knowledge in nuclear physics. In this respect the NPD regularly awards some of Europe’s most prestigious prizes. Among these is the “Lise Meitner Prize”, named after the famous Austrian physicist who worked on radioactivity and nuclear physics. Nominations are now open for the Lise Meitner Prize in 2016. The prize, awarded to one or several experienced scientists, recognises outstanding work in the fields of experimental, theoretical or applied nuclear science. Particular consideration will be given to scientific activities that represent the core of the nuclear science in Europe.
The 2014 Lise Meitner Prize has been jointly awarded to Johanna Stachel (University of Heidelberg), Peter Braun-Munzinger (GSI Darmstadt), Paolo Giubellino (University of Torino) and Jürgen Schukraft (CERN) for “their outstanding contributions to the experimental exploration of the quark-gluon plasma using ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions, in particular to the design and construction of ALICE and shaping its physics program and scientific results bringing to light unique and unexpected features of…
The 2012 Lise Meitner Prize has been jointly awarded to Karlheinz Langanke, of GSI and TU Darmstadt, and Friedrich-Karl Thielemann of the University of Basel, for “their seminal contributions to the description of nuclear processes in astrophysical environments that have changed our modern understanding of stellar evolution, supernovae explosions and nucleosynthesis.”
