In addition to the various activities, ECCOMAS has established three medals to eminent researchers, two awards for young scientists and two awards for the best Ph.D. Theses in the field of Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering.
Every person who has presented a thesis within the ECCOMAS fields of interest and was approved by a University or a Research Organization in Europe qualifies for the Award and can submit an application. Each local ECCOMAS Member Association selects one candidate thesis according to an internally decided selection procedure. The local ECCOMAS Associations send the theses to the ECCOMAS Secretariat in Barcelona where the ECCOMAS PhD Awards Committee selects two Awardees. The selected candidates/finalists get a Diploma as the Best PhD Thesis from the local Society.
