Each year the Institute of Corrosion bestows a range of internationally-renowned awards in recognition of excellence in corrosion science and engineering and to reward outstanding service to the Institute and the wider corrosion community. Many of these awards are open to nomination by members of the Institute. Below is a brief description of each award together with details of how to nominate potential candidates.
U.R. Evans Award
The U.R. Evans Award is the premier scientific award of the Institute of Corrosion and is presented annually for outstanding international achievements in pure or applied corrosion science. The recipient is selected by a Corrosion Science Division panel and presented with a sword at the annual Corrosion Science Symposium. The symposium is one which seeks to encourage the participation of the junior members of the corrosion community who would appreciate the visit of, and address by, a corrosion scientist of international repute. The form of the award symbolizes the fight in which we are all engaged. The recipient is also granted Honorary Life Fellowship of the Institute. Nominations may be submitted at any time via email to the CSD Chair, Julian Wharton (J.A.Wharton@soton.ac.uk).
Paul McIntyre Award
The Paul McIntyre Award is presented to a senior corrosion engineer, who, as well as being a leading practitioner in his field, has advanced European collaboration and international standards development. The award consists of an engraved trophy, which is presented at the annual CED Working Day meeting. The recipient is requested to present a brief overview of their activities and encouraged to prepare an article for publication in Corrosion Management. Nominations should be submitted to the CED Chair, Nick Smart (firstname.lastname@example.org), by
28 February 2020.
H.G. Cole Award
The H.G. Cole award is in the form of a poignard and is made in recognition of exceptional services to the development of the Institute. It is only awarded on an occasional basis, typically every 5 to 10 years, reflecting the highest possible level of commitment of the recipient to the activities of the Institute. Nomination and selection for this award is administered by the ICorr Awards Committee. Nominations may be made at any time to the Awards Committee Chair, Gareth Hinds (email@example.com).
Honorary Fellowship is awarded in recognition of outstanding service to the Institute over many years. The recipient is bestowed the suffix FICorr (Hon) and all future membership fees are waived. Nominations for Honorary Fellowship must be submitted via Council.
T.P. Hoar Award
The T.P. Hoar Award is presented to the authors of the best paper published in the scientific journal Corrosion Science during the previous calendar year. The winning paper is selected by a sub-committee of the Corrosion Science Division and the authors receive a certificate and a cash sum of £400. The recipient of the award in 2019 will be announced by the end of the year.
The Galloway Award is presented to a student author for the best publication describing original research in corrosion science and engineering as judged by a sub-committee of the Corrosion Science Division. A summary of the winning paper is published in Corrosion Management and the prize consists of a certificate and a cash sum of £300. The Institute does not retain copyright of the material, so this does not prevent separate publication of the work in a scientific journal. Submissions (in the form of papers published within the past 12 months or draft publications) may be sent via email at any time to the CSD Chair, Julian Wharton (J.A.Wharton@soton.ac.uk). The decision on this year’s award will be made shortly.
Lionel Shreir Award
The Lionel Shreir Award is made to the best student presenter at the annual Corrosion Science Symposium. Selection of the recipient is carried out by a sub-committee of the Corrosion Science Division. The award consists of a certificate and a cash prize of £125.
