Tribology Gold Medal
The Tribology Gold Medal is awarded each year for some outstanding and supreme achievement in the field of Tribology. It is the supreme international award in the field for contributions to tribology that are considered to have been outstandingly meritorious.
The International Tribology Council is linked to the Tribology Trust, an independent UK Charity which is administered by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London. The Tribology Gold Medal Award, which is the world’s premier award in Tribology, is funded from The Tribology Trust, and the ITC has an essential role in nominating and evaluating candidates for the Gold Medal.
The Gold Medal for Tribology was established and first awarded in 1972. It has been awarded to 47 individuals from 18 different countries.
Nomination of Tribology Gold Medal candidates can be done by ITC Executives or a Past Gold Medal winner. ITC Executives are the ITC President, Vice Presidents, Associate Members and members of the Executive Committee.
The merits of the candidates are evaluated by international experts for the Awards Committee considering:
- The candidate’s main achievements in tribology
- The candidate’s influence in the development of tribology
- The candidate’s influence on science and technology in tribology
- The influence of the candidate’s work on industry and/or the economy
