IANAS Anneke Levelt Sengers Prize
This prize takes the name of Anneke Levelt-Sengers, a distinguished Physicist, Member of the US-National Academy of Sciences and co-chair of the IAC advisory report “Women for Science” (http://www.interacademies.org/34743/Advisory-Panel), in recognition of her pioneering and inspiring work in front of the IANAS Women for Science Program (2010-2016), which aims to recognize the effort and talent of young scientists in the Americas.
Following the IANAS Call, and after a rigorous internal procedure, the Academies of Sciences from Bolivia, The Caribbean (CAS), Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Uruguay sent their nominees.
The Selection Committee is formed by scientists appointed by the Academies not participating in the call and it has the difficult task to select one single winner. In 2012 Clarimar Camacho from Venezuela was the first awardee; in 2015 Lianet Manzonte from Cuba was the second recipient of this Prize and we are looking forward to announcing the winner for the 2018 IANAS-TWAS ROLAC Anneke Levelt Sengers Prize in February 2019.
This section is proud to present the Winners as well as the Participants of the IANAS Anneke Levelt Sengers Prize.
