Regulations for the International Terminology Awards

The International Terminology Awards will be awarded every second year for the highest achievement in research in the field of terminology. They have been established with a view to promoting research and development and supporting future terminological activity by rewarding the work of up-and-coming researchers in the field.  The awards are open to candidates from all over the world.
The theses, dissertations or other contributions received will be evaluated by the International Terminology Awards Jury who will decide on the Award winner(s). The evaluation of the Jury will focus on the innovative content of the works and on how they contribute towards further developing applied research and development in the field of terminology. The second and third best dissertation or thesis may be given an honourable mention. No form of legal recourse is possible.
The Awards consist of a certificate and an amount of award money, which is jointly sponsored by a number of associations in the field of terminology and which may vary according to the number of sponsors. The Award ceremony will take place in conjunction with one of the major international terminology events.
The European Association for Terminology (EAFT) will act as Secretariat for the Awards, in that the EAFT Secretariat will administer communications concerning the competitions and contact with the Jury. Furthermore, an EAFT Board member will act as Chairperson of the Jury. All enquiries, comments or suggestions, therefore, should be addressed to the Secretary of the EAFT.
