Established in 2010 to showcase and celebrate engineering innovation and excellence, 2019 will mark the 10th anniversary of the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards. The Geoscience Ireland Award – now in its fifth year – is now open to applicants.
The Award recognises exceptional achievement in design and/or delivery of projects requiring significant geo-scientific expertise. For example, involving geological, geochemical, geophysical, geotechnical or hydrogeological studies or projects in the development of natural resources, infrastructure and water services preferably but not exclusively in international markets.
Collaboration among different organisations is common practice on projects in the geoscience field, therefore we welcome joint entries to this award.
