Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Early Career Scientists

The Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Early Career Scientists (formerly Outstanding Young Scientist Award) recognises scientific achievements in any field of the geosciences, made by an early career scientist. From 2011 onwards the EGU Council renamed the former Outstanding Young Scientist Award in honour of Arne Richter, the former Executive Secretary of the EGU, for his never-ending efforts to promote early career scientists.

Arne Richter awardees are selected amongst candidates for Division Outstanding Early Career Scientists Award. All nominations for these awards are first evaluated by the relevant division presidents who forward the best candidate to the chair of the Union Awards Committee. Four candidates are then selected by the Council and awarded at the Union level (Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Early Career Scientists). The remaining best candidates are awarded by the relevant division.
