The 2012 Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Young Scientists is awarded to Aikaterini Radioti for her remarkable work in the field of auroral dynamics of Jupiter and Saturn, to which she contributed with original ideas based on combined studies of remote auroral and in‐situ magnetospheric data.

Aikaterini Radioti has contributed original ideas in the field of auroral dynamics of Jupiter and Saturn, based on combined studies of remote auroral and in-­situ magnetospheric data as well as the development and application of theoretical approaches on ionospheric-­magnetospheric coupling. For example:

Despite her young age Radioti is also a remarkable scientific workshop organizer and session convener. She was the main organizer of two auroral Europlanet workshops in 2008 and 2010, sponsored by Europlanet, and convened two auroral sessions in the 2009 and 2011 EPSC meetings. Radioti contributed to 18 papers (nine as the first author), all published in international peer-reviewed journals. Three of her publications (one as first author and two as co-author) were highlighted by AGU. Her work has been recognized with the awarding of the prestigious Prix Baron Nicolet by the Belgian Royal Academy of Sciences (2010), for outstanding research on the field of aeronomy. She received twice an FNRS (Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique) grant and a Max-Planck-Institute doctoral fellowship. She undoubtedly is a very active and dynamical scientist.
