The EurAAP Awards have been created to recognise the contribution of an individual person to:
· Advances in Antennas or Propagation
· Education in the fields of Antennas or Propagation
· Coordination of research & networking activities in the fields of Antennas or Propagation in Europe or in relation with European actors
Starting in 2015, two Awards were established: the EurAAP Antenna Award and the EurAAP Propagation Award.
LEOPOLD B. FELSEN AWARD
The “Leopold B. Felsen Award for Excellence in Electrodynamics” (henceforth “the Award”) was originally established jointly by the University of Siena and the University of Sannio, funded through a donation from Michael and Judy Felsen in fulfilment of the last wishes of their father, Professor Leo Felsen (1924-2005). Since from 2015, the Award is established by the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP).
The main purpose of the EurAAP Felsen Award is to keep alive Prof. Felsen’s memory and scientific legacy, as well as to foster academic excellence in the electromagnetics community, by giving recognition to outstanding fundamental contributions from early stage researchers in electrodynamics.
PER-SIMON KILDAL AWARD
The “Per-Simon Kildal Award for best PhD in Antennas & Propagation” (henceforth “the Award”) has been created through a donation from Cécile Schilliger, Madeleine Schilliger Kildal and Susanne Schilliger Kildal, in memory of their husband and father, Professor Per-Simon Kildal (1951-2016). Since 2018, the Award is established by the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP).
The main purpose of the EurAAP Kildal Award is to keep alive Prof. Kildal’s legacy, as well as to foster the work of young researchers in the fields of Antennas and Propagation. This award recognizes an outstanding dissertation by an individual who has earned a doctoral degree. The dissertation can be in any discipline in the field of antennas and propagation.
EuCAP BEST PAPER & BEST STUDENT
The EuCAP Best Paper Awards have been created to contribute to the recognition of scientific quality of research and engineering in four thematic domains
(Measurement/Propagation/Electromagnetism and Antenna Theory/Antenna Design and Applications) whereas Best Student Paper Awards are not related to a specific thematic domain.
