Awards panel

The panel has the responsibility of adjudicating all nominations and providing recommendations to the EC3 board. Through its awards, the EC3 advances its mission of recognising the contributions of individuals in advancing the fields of interest to EC3 to the benefit of society. The awards panel is responsible for:

  1. Evaluating the nominations received
  2. Preserving the integrity of the evaluation process, assuring that the process is both open and rigorous and that the process contributes to the prestige of the council and the awards recipients
