Tribology Gold Medal 2020 nominations

date: 04.08.2020

Nominations for the 2020 Tribology Gold Medal are open until the 31st of October 2020.

Tribology Gold Medal Award (Serial 451) is funded from The Tribology Trust Fund and selected by the Tribology Trust Awards Committee, administered by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

It is awarded each year for some outstanding and supreme achievement in the field of tribology. The Gold Medal may be awarded to a team, in which case each member of the team receives a replica of the medal. A certificate is also presented to medal winners.

The Tribology Gold Medal is considered the world’s premier award in tribology. Accordingly, the Committee collaborates with the International Tribology Council (ITC) Executive to ensure that all candidates have references and strong support from at least five eminent tribologists from different countries before their application is considered. Either the nominator or the seconder must be a member of the ITC Executive or a past Gold Medal award winner.

The current award is for the 2020 Gold Medal (it has been delayed for administrative reasons following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations).

Closing date for reception of nominations: 31st of October 2020.
