According to the rules, the Institute’s annual prize is awarded for scientific work that represents a significant contribution to a specific field of physics that is being developed at the Institute.
Traditionally, the winner of the award at the Colloquium of the Institute gives a lecture in the field for which the award was given, which is an integral part of the formal celebration of the anniversary of the Institute.
Proposals for the annual award are submitted to the Scientific Council of the Institute by project managers, scientific-research groups or researchers in a scientific position working at the Institute. The decision on awarding the award is made by a three-member jury appointed by the Scientific Council and consisting of the previous three winners of the Annual Award.
The jury takes into account several criteria: the quality of the published papers and their impact on the scientific field, i.e. the problem to which they belong, then the candidate’s creative share in the achieved results, the Institute’s share in the achieved results, as well as the number of papers and their categories.
The annual award can be awarded to an individual a maximum of two times, and consists of a diploma and a monetary part in the amount of three average net earnings at the Institute.
In addition to the Annual Award, according to the Institute’s Award Rules, one Student Award is also awarded for the best doctoral thesis completed at the Institute and defended during the previous year.
The student award consists of a diploma and a monetary part equal to one average monthly net salary at the Institute.
The awarding of the Student Award is carried out according to the procedure established for the awarding of the Annual Award for Scientific Work and is awarded by the same jury.
Every year on the anniversary of the Institute, in addition to these awards, the Award for Financial Contribution to the Institute is awarded. This award is given to an individual working in the Institute who, through his activities during the previous calendar year, provided the greatest financial contribution to the Institute.
The award for financial contribution consists of a diploma and a monetary part equal to three average monthly net earnings at the Institute.
The decision on awarding the Award for financial contribution is made by the director of the Institute by April 30 of the current year based on the report submitted to him by the head of the Accounting Department.
In order for the prize to be awarded, the financial contribution for which it is awarded must be at least five times greater than the monetary part of the prize.
The award for financial contribution can be awarded to the same winner a maximum of two times.
The Director of the Institute cannot be a winner of the Award for Financial Contribution.
