The ISBE offers International Bionic Engineering Award at each triennial conference to honour and encourage the society members for their prominent contributions and achievements in the field of bionic engineering.
The Award includes three categories:
1) Outstanding Contribution Award: Two winners, each one will be awarded 30,000 RMB;
2) Outstanding Youth Award: Two winners aged under 40 years old, and each one will be awarded 10,000 RMB.
3) Outstanding Student Award: Two winners aged under 30 years old, and each one will be awarded 5,000 RMB.
1) Outstanding Contribution Award and Outstanding Youth Award:
a. The winners shall have contributed remarkable research achievements in bionic engineering;
b. The winners shall have made great progress in scientific research, community service, technology transfer, etc in bionic engineering;
c. The winners shall have made a prominent contribution to the promotion of science and technology, international communication and collaboration, etc in bionic engineering.
2) Outstanding Student Award:
a. The winners shall be the students majored in a bionic academic discipline;
b. The winners shall show outstanding scientific and research qualities;
c. The winners shall have made remarkable research achievements in bionic engineering.
Now nominations are invited for this Award, and there are three methods of nominating candidates:
2) Recommended by another member;
3) Recommended by a group of colleagues.
Self-recommendation needs to fill out the Application Form and provide the necessary proof materials. Recommended by another member or a group of colleagues also need to fill out the Application Form and give statements for recommendation. At the initial stage, the nominees probably may not be the society members because our members come from different countries and not necessarily familiar with each other, but they should be the person who made contribution in the field of bionic engineering and become the members of ISBE at the enrollment stage.
The ISBE Evaluation Committee will be responsible for the award evaluation, and the nominations will be assessed equally on the nominee’s merits and eligibility. The final result will be announced at the ISBE website and the award ceremony will be held during the 7th International Conference of Bionic Engineering (ICBE 2022, September 15-18, 2022, Wuhan, P. R. China) when the winners will be presented with the certificate and monetary award.
