In addition, every year SETAC Europe organises the Environmental Education Award. This award is presented at the SETAC Europe Annual Meeting to a well-respected scientist in this field residing in Europe or in one of the territories administered by SETAC Europe. The purpose of the award is to honour activities in the dissemination of knowledge on environmental sciences. An outstanding record of interdisciplinary activities related to the distribution of knowledge on environmental sciences and substantial contributions to the education in this field are key criteria in granting this award.
