GANIL Award for best Ph.D. Thesis

The GANIL Thesis Award recognizes and rewards achievements of PhD students who earned their doctoral degree based on GANIL experiments or a theoretical study closely related to research at GANIL. The award is granted periodically and awarded during a ceremony at the Colloque GANIL, where the winner will have the opportunity to present her or his work. The award is endowed with 1000 Euro. Travel and accommodation at the Colloque GANIL will be covered for the award winner.


Nominated theses will be judged on their content, originality, clarity of writing, and impact within the GANIL community and the field of nuclear physics in general. Nominations will be evaluated by a committee comprising representatives of the Scientific Council, the Programme Advisory Committee, the GANIL User Executive Committee, and the GANIL management.


Award Committee chaired by Andreas Goergen gave the 2019 Award to dr. Marco Siciliano
