2.       Biennial Award

Biennial Awards of the Society are given for outstanding contributions to the field of evolutionary developmental biology. The awardee is invited to present a keynote lecture at the Biennial Meeting and receives the Society Medal.

For both awards, nominations can be made by email to Deadline for nominations is the 29th of December 2023. Please use “EED award” as the subject line. Please attach a word document in which you briefly (200-500 words) outline the justification as to why you nominate a person, and for which award you nominate them. The Executive Committee will collect nominations and seek approval from the Council for the awardees. The awardees will be announced at the meeting in Helsinki.
