The shortlisted candidates are:

  • Paul Wassman, for outstanding long lasting  achievements to improve the knowledge on the ecology of the Arctic Ocean and the ability to combine excellent science and holistic drive to bring together various disciplines.
  • Markus Rex and Matthew Shupe, for outstanding achievements to plan and execute the unique international Arctic Ocean program MOSAiC which is fundamental for our understanding of the Arctic and which will serve the international community with new data that was not previously possible to access.
  • Robert Corell, for outstanding achievements in the pursuit of Arctic science across past political divides, the promotion of diversity in research through mentoring, and leadership that has brought science and public policy together and was critical to the formation of IASC.

IASC would like to thank the 2023 IASC Medal Committee, who reviewed the nominations: Monika Kędra (Chair), Margareta Johansson, Sergi Pla-Rabes, Muyin Wang and Silja Zimmermann.
