Building Simulation Group Awards open for entries

2020 sees the introduction of the new Young Modeller Award

The CIBSE Building Simulation Awards 2020 and CIBSE Building Simulation Young Modeller 2020 are open for entries, with prizes of £1,000 and £500 respectively up for grabs.

The awards, offered by the CIBSE Building Simulation Group (BSG), aim to encourage innovation in building simulation techniques.

Entries should provide information about a project that has a simulation or modelling aspect, and give details of why simulation and modelling were important.

All entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts, who will select six entrants to present their papers at an online event as part of Build2Perform Live in November, when the winner will be announced.

Young Modeller 2020 is a new award that recognises the outstanding contribution of young engineers, apprentices and sustainability consultants working with building simulation.

Nominees in academia, industry or the public sector who are within three years of completion of their highest degree, as well as undergraduates, apprentices or those graduating in 2020-21 are welcome to apply. They must submit samples of their work, their CV and a referee’s testimonial.

The deadline for entries for both awards is 23 October.
