Outstanding Achievement Award

The SSN Outstanding and Sustained Achievement Award recognizes distinguished academic achievement in Surveillance Studies. The person nominated have made an outstanding and sustained contribution to the field, from any disciplinary background and have “made a difference” to how Surveillance Studies is understood and practiced. While outstanding excellence is the key criterion for the award, the committee will also take into account gender and visible minority status.

Three nominators are required and they should each send a letter by email to the chair of the panel, stating the case for their nominee. A copy of the nominee’s CV should be attached to the original nominator’s letter. Neither the nominators nor the nominee need to be members of SSN. A panel of three SSN directors will adjudicate the nominations.

The award will be announced on the SSN website and presented at the biannual SSN conference.
