ANIV AWARD in a nutshell

ANIV promotes excellence and originality in research about Wind Engineering.
The ANIV Award is established to recognize them among young researchers born in Italy or recipient of a PhD degree obtained in Italy.
The Award is remitted at the biannual conference IN-VENTO for a scientific paper on Wind Engineering topics, published (or accepted for publication) in an international journal indexed in ISI and/or SCOPUS during the two years preceding the conference.

ANIV AWARD forthcoming edition

ANIV is calling for nominations for ANIV Award 2024.
Applicants can submit the scientific paper, together with a short scientific report that clearly demonstrates the close connection between the scientific paper and their PhD Thesis, and a copy of a valid identity document that certifies the Author’s date of birth, no later than June 30th 2024 to the ANIV President.
Please, refer to the full regulation below.
