Nominate candidates for the Leonardo da Vinci Medal 2020

The Leonardo da Vinci Medal is the society’s highest honor, presented to an individual who has greatly contributed to the history of technology through research, teaching, publications, service to the Society, and other activities.

SHOT invites members to nominate candidates for the Leonardo da Vinci Medal. To put forward a person’s name for consideration for the award, please upload a letter of nomination, describing the person’s outstanding contributions to the history of technology, to SHOT’s online submission system. The deadline for 2020 nominations is 1 May 2020.

Please note that there is no standard format for a letter of nomination. Current members of SHOT’s Executive Council cannot be considered as a Da Vinci medalist.

The nominations will be reviewed by the Da Vinci Medal Committee. This committee comprises all SHOT prize committee chairs. It is chaired by the immediate SHOT past-President for two consecutive years.

John Krige,
Chair Da Vinci Medal Committee 2020
