Hevesy Medal Award
The George Hevesy Medal Award (HMA) is the premier international award of excellence in radioanalytical and nuclear chemistry. It is awarded to an individual in recognition of excellence through outstanding, sustained career achievements in the fields of pure as well as applied nuclear and radiochemistry, particularly applications to nuclear analytical chemistry. Established originally in 1968 by the Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry (JRNC), the George Hevesy Medal Award has been given 19 times during 1968-86. This Award has been reactivated in 2000. It is sponsored by JRNC and adjudicated by the International Committee on Activation Analysis/Modern Trends in Activation Analysis (ICAA/MTAA). The Award has no monetary value. The George Hevesy Medal Award comprises an engraved bronze medal and an ornamental scroll.
