2016 Leopold B. Felsen Award

The "Leopold B. Felsen Award for Excellence in Electrodynamics" was originally established jointly by the University of Siena and the University of Sannio, funded through a donation from Michael and Judy Felsen in fulfilment of the last wishes of their father, Professor Leo Felsen (1924-2005). Starting from 2015, the Award will be established by the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP). Detailed information on the Award is available at EurAAP Leopold B Felsen Award website.



The Award, by nomination only, will be presented annually, as a career award, to an early stage researcher. Eligible nominees should be under 40 years of age at the submission deadline. Previous awardees (also from the former Sannio and Siena editions) are not eligible.


The award consists of a prize of 4,000 euro, which will be funded by the Felsen Family through a donation. The Award will be officially presented every year at the banquet of the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP).
