EPS Award Committee set up a selection procedure:

  • At least 3 nominations per award, if there are less nominations the award will be postponed to the next year
    • Nominations (without changes) can be submitted the following year again
  • 2 steps procedure
    • Step 1:
      • Nominations will be anonymized (by Anja Mosselman)
      • Dividing the committee in three groups (per award 2-3 people)
      • Each subgroup will generate a shortlist with the Top 3
    • Step 2:
      • Nominations are not anonymized anymore
      • The whole committee will evaluate the three Top 3
      • Short interview with the nominators (max 10 min)
      • If there is no clear first place, somebody outside the committee can be asked for advice
        • Should not be part of the group of the possible award winners
        • For example: Theme coordinators, EPS office members or board members
  • The award winners will be announced at the Annual Meeting Experimental Plant Sciences in Lunteren
