FIT Council has decided that the FIT Statutory Congress and the FIT World Congress in Varadero, Cuba, on 30–31 May and 1–3 June 2022, respectively, will go ahead as planned.

We are pleased to advise that we received a huge number of entries for the different categories of FIT prizes before the closing date yesterday. 

In late August, with the closing date for nominations of 1 September approaching,  the Awards team was approached by some FIT member associations with requests to extend the deadline for submission of nominations in the following three prize categories:

  1. Marion Boers prize
  2. FIT Prize for Excellence in Scientific and Technical  Translation
  3. Pierre-François Caillé Medal

The reasons for the requests struck us as valid, and so for these three categories we have agreed to extend the nomination period to 1 October.

Please send nominations for these three prizes to the following link:
