The award winner will be announced at the 2016 ERS International Congress in London (3-7 September 2016) during the Opening Ceremony.

People who have received an ERS Gold Medal previously, or any other ERS award or grant in the last three years, are not eligible to apply.

The selection of the successful candidate will be made by the ERS Science Council. The Medal’s applications are judged independently of the sponsor on the basis of scientific merit.

The Gold Medal funding must be used to support a research or training project in the field of ILD and will be partially given to the institution at which the project is ongoing.
