The RSE BP Hutton Prize in Energy Innovation

The RSE BP Hutton Prize in Energy Innovation

This prize, funded by the BP Trust, and carrying a prize of £10,000, will be made on a biennial basis by the Council of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, to an individual early career researcher based in Scotland, who has shown “a significant individual contribution to energy innovation through research and knowledge exchange”.

The Prize is named in honour of James Hutton, an eminent Scottish Geologist and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. His most important contribution to science was his Theory of the Earth, (1785), and for this theory Hutton has earned the accolade of 'founder of modern geology'.
