Regulations and Call for Fellow Nominations
Election to the status of Fellow of EUROMECH, Fluid or Solid, will take place the year before the appropriate EUROMECH Conference, European Fluid Mechanics Conference (EFMC) or European Solid Mechanics Conference (ESMC), and is limited in total (fluids and solids together) to no more than one-half of one percent of the then current membership of the Society.
A nomination may be submitted by any member of the EUROMECH Society, hereafter called the nominator. Eligible candidates should be members of EUROMECH and have undertaken a significant proportion of their scientific career in Europe. Self-nominations cannot be accepted.
The nomination documents should include the following items:
- a presentation letter from the nominator summarizing the contributions and achievements of the nominee in support of his/her nomination as Fellow;
- a curriculum vitae of the nominee;
- a selection of the nominee's most significant publications (20 publications maximum);
- two letters of support in addition to the presentation by the nominator;
- a suggested citation to appear on the Fellowship certificate (30 words maximum);
- a supporting paragraph enlarging on the citation, indicating the originality and significance of the contributions cited (limit 250 words).
All documents should be written (or translated) in English.
The Fellows are selected the year before the respective EFMC and ESMC. Nomination packages need to be sent as electronic files to the Chair of the Fellowship Committee with a copy to the President and to the Secretary General of EUROMECH before 30 September of year N-1, if N is the year of the EFMC or ESMC. Nominations remain active for two selection campaigns. Nominations are reviewed before the end of October by the relevant EUROMECH Prize Committee and a recipient is selected from the nominations. The final decision is made by the EUROMECH Council.
Members of the EUROMECH Council and of the Prize committees are not eligible for EUROMECH awards and cannot act as nominators. The nominators or support letter writers should disclose the nature of their professional relationship with the nominee.
For each prize, a Prize and Fellowship Committee, with a Chair and four additional members is appointed by the EUROMECH Council for a period of three years. The Chair and the four additional members may be re-appointed once.
