Awards

Each year with an IBA meeting the IBA does award outstanding research and engagement that have impacted the advancement of electrochemical energy storage. Previous to each annual meeting the IBA calls for award nominations. The IBA Award Committee collects the nominations while the IBA board of directors and associate directors reviews the nominations in each category and selects the award winners. The IBA board reserves the right to decide, whether an IBA award is shared or will be not given in a certain category for the individual year. The winners are recognized at the respective IBA annual meeting.

The IBA directs the following award program:

IBA YEAGER AWARD Outstanding contributions to electrochemical energy conversion and storage science over a protracted period.
IBA RESEARCH AWARD Outstanding contributions to advances in electrochemical energy conversion and storage research.
IBA (COMPANY) TECHNOLOGY AWARD Outstanding contributions to advances in electrochemical energy conversion and storage technology. A technology award may be solicited and awarded to an industrial company at the discretion of the IBA Board.
IBA EARLY CAREER AWARD Outstanding contributions to advances in electrochemical energy conversion and storage research at an early career stage, typically up to ten years after receiving a Master’s degree or PhD in science, or engineering equivalent (established in 2016).
IBA MEDAL OF EXCELLENCE Exceptional life-long contributions to electrochemical energy conversion and storage research and/or technology development. This award will be presented at a special one-day symposium of the respective IBA meeting in honor of the recipient (established in 2016).
IBA SERVICE AWARD Outstanding contributions in service to the IBA (established in 2000).
