European Foundations Award for Responsible Research and Inovation

The Royal Society Awards are open for nominations up to 30 January 2017:
  1. Copley Medal is awarded annually for outstanding achievements in any branch of science made by experiment or otherwise. It is the world's oldest scientific prize first awarded in 1731 from Godfrey Copley FRS (1653 – 1709) who donated 1000 pounds for improving natural knowledge.

  2. Queen’s Medals are three Royal Medals awarded annually for most important contributions “to the advancement of Natural Knowledge” in the physical and biological sciences. The third medal is awarded for distinguished contributions in the applied sciences.

  3. Bakerian Medal awards ?100 for an oration or discourse on natural history or experimental philosophy. It was established by Henry Baker FRS (1698 – 1774).

  4. Davy Medal is awarded annually to an outstanding researcher in the field of chemistry. It was first awarded in 1877.

  5. Hughes Medal is awarded biennially (in odd years) to an outstanding researcher in the field of energy.
