International Society for Industrial Ecology


At the ISIE Conference in Ulsan South Korea, June 25-28, 2013, we will present two awards for exemplary contributions to industrial ecology.  The first is the Society Prize for outstanding research in industrial ecology.  There are no specific requirements for this award, which could be centered on a single particular accomplishment or those of a career, but it is intended to be the ISIE's highest recognition of professional achievement.  The second award is the Laudise Prize for outstanding achievements in industrial ecology by a researcher under the age of 36, funded by AT&T in memory of Robert Laudise.  We seek nominations for these two awards.  Current officers of the Society and members of the Awards Committee are not eligible for nomination while serving in those positions.

Nominations will be due in the ISIE offices no later than April 30, 2013. This date includes receipt of all parts of the nominations, including seconding letters. The nominations will be reviewed and selections made by the Awards Committee, and the awards presented at the ISIE meeting.

As we have done with the Laudise Prize, we also hope to endow the Society Prize as well as an additional prize for achievements in industrial ecology education. If you can identify and solicit a donation to support one of these prizes, it would be a great service to ISIE.  The sponsoring organization can name the award if it wishes.

This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate achievement, but it requires the effort to put forward excellent nomination packages. Please help the Society and your colleagues by doing so. 

Thank you.
