A passionate Geologist, an inspiring Professor, a charismatic Science Broadcaster. Iain Stewart is one of those rare people whose personality, and resume, stands out by their richness and uniqueness. It then comes as no surprise that this Scottish geologist, currently Professor of  Geoscience Communication at the University of Plymouth (UK), was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire in 2013 for popularising geography and earth sciences.

And it then comes as no surprise, but with much honor and excitement, that the EFG has decided to award this year Iain Stewart with the Medal of Merit for his outstanding contribution in elevating the profile of geology around the world. The official ceremony will take place in Brussels during EFG’s Council Meeting, on 11 November 2017. A special day to celebrate the work of a very special Geologist.
