Harold Hotelling Medal award

The Harold Hotelling Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Energy, Natural Resources, and Environment
This is a competitive award that recognizes ​the lifetime achievements of INFORMS scholars who have made sustained and exceptional contributions to the major areas spanned by ENRE. The name honors the legacy of Harold Hotelling (1895-1973) who made extensive theoretical contributions to the fields of economics and statistics, and applied optimization methods to various practical and important problems in economics, most notably to spatial economics and optimum management of natural resources.
All members of INFORMS who do outstanding work in one or more of the ENRE-related areas are eligible for nomination. Although ENRE membership is not required, it will be given consideration. Nominations can only be made by current regular members of ENRE. Neither the nominator nor the nominee may be serving on the award committee in the year of the nomination. Contenders who do not receive the award in an award cycle may be nominated again in subsequent years.
