The Great Gold Medal and Gold Medals are awarded to individuals whose outstanding work has helped to create a better society. The Medals are presented by IVA’s Patron H.M. The King at the Annual Meeting of the Academy. 

IVA’s award for science journalism – the Hans Bergström Award– is presented every year. The award was instituted to recognise a scientific approach in the media and for excellent journalism in science, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship – in a tradition of informing, educating, in-depth explanation, integrity and a belief in the future.

There are also distinctions and scholarships to apply for, including from the Hans Werthén Foundation which every year awards around 15 scholarships for a year of scientific work at the postdoc or doctoral candidate level or for MBA or LL.M studies in an advanced international setting.
