2017 Hevesy Medal Award


The Hevesy Medal Award Selection Panel 2017 (HMASP-17) is pleased to announce that Professor RNDr. Pavel P. POVINEC, DrSc. ( of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics, Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia, has been selected to receive the Hevesy Medal Award 2017 (HMA-17) in recognition of his work in the development of ultra-sensitive radioanalytical technologies and their applications in large-scale environmental research studies, investigation of rare nuclear processes, and development of high-sensitivity accelerator technologies for isotope analysis.

The Hevesy Medal and a Scroll will be presented to Professor POVINEC at the 6th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Radiochemistry (APSORC 17) on September 18, 2017.

The HMASP-17 consisted of Professor Amares CHATT (Canada, also Chair of JRNC Board of the Hevesy Award and Chair of HMASP-17), Professor Tibor BRAUN (JRNC Board of the Hevesy Award), Professor Zhifang CHAI (China), Professor Yong Hee CHUNG (Korea, also representing APSORC 17), Professor Sue CLARK (U.S.A.), Dr. Yuichiro NAGAME (Japan), Professor Syed QAIM (Germany), Dr. Zsolt RÉVAY (Germany, also JRNC Board of the Hevesy Award), and Dr. Rolf ZEISLER (U.S.A.). In accordance with the rules of the Award, a secret vote was conducted.

The George Hevesy Medal Award is the premier international award of excellence in radioanalytical and nuclear chemistry. It is named after George de HEVESY (1885-1966) who received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1943 for his work on the use of isotopes as tracers in the study of chemical processes. The George Hevesy Medal is awarded to an individual in recognition of excellence through outstanding, sustained career achievements in the fields of pure as well as applied nuclear and radiochemistry, in particular applications to nuclear analytical chemistry. Established originally in 1968 by Professor Tibor BRAUN, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry (JRNC), the Hevesy Medal Award was given 19 times during 1968-86. This Award was reactivated in 2000 by Professors BRAUN and CHATT. It is sponsored by JRNC, administered as well as adjudicated by the JRNC Board of the Hevesy Award. The Award has no monetary value. The George Hevesy Medal Award comprises an engraved bronze medal in a presentation case and an ornamental scroll, which are presented at a major international radiochemical conference being held in the year of the award.
