The George Hevesy Medal Award is the premier international award of excellence in radioanalytical and nuclear chemistry. It is named after George de HEVESY (1885-1966) who received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1943 for his work on the use of isotopes as tracers in the study of chemical processes.

The George Hevesy Medal is awarded to an individual in recognition of excellence through outstanding, sustained career achievements in the fields of pure as well as applied nuclear and radiochemistry, in particular applications to nuclear analytical chemistry.
Established originally in 1968 by Professor Tibor BRAUN, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry (JRNC), the Hevesy Medal Award was given 19 times during 1968-86. This Award was reactivated in 2000 by Professors BRAUN and CHATT. It is sponsored by JRNC and administered as well as adjudicated by the JRNC Board of the Hevesy Award.
The Award has no monetary value. The George Hevesy Medal Award comprises an engraved bronze medal in a presentation case and an ornamental scroll, which are presented at a major international radiochemical conference being held in the year of the award.
