The Scherer Award was established by the EC3 Board in 2018 in the honour of Prof Raimar Scherer, the founder of the European Conference on Product and Process Modelling, which is the first European community within the Built Environment computing space and a predecessor of EC3.
The Scherer award is awarded every two years to an active or former EC3 officer for outstanding service to the computing community in the context of EC3.

Computing-related contributions in any technical built environment discipline or professional context are eligible for this award without restriction.
Not more than one presentation of the award will be made every two years unless the achievement upon which the award is based in the joint work of more than one individual. No individual may receive the award, or a portion thereof, more than once.
