The Young Rheologists Rheology Award with 500 Euro may be given to a young person who has made outstanding work in basic or applied rheology at the graduate or postgraduate level.

The awardees are selected from the nominations by the Award Committee which consists of Annika Sahlström, Kurt Ingar Draget, Ole Hassager and Jón Elvar Wallevik. A letter describing the nominee and a motivation can be sent to the NRS president before January 15 every year or when separately announced.
