IIASA distinguished visiting fellow and former council chair Simon Levin and the eight other awardees received their medals in a White House ceremony on 19 May.
The President recognized Levin "for international leadership in environmental science, straddling ecology and applied mathematics, to promote conservation; for his impact on a generation of environmental scientists; and for his critical contributions to ecology, environmental economics, epidemiology, applied mathematics, and evolution."
The National Medal of Science, established in 1959, recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to science and engineering.
