Prof. Heino Nitsche (Department of Chemistry, University of California at Berkeley, California, U.S.A.) receives the Hevesy Medal Award 2014 in recognition of his international contributions to heavy element chemistry and actinide environmental chemistry. (presented on 17th Radiochemical Conference (RadChem 2014) in Marianske Lazne, Czech Republic on the 11th May 2014.)

The George Hevesy Medal Award is the premier international award of excellence in radioanalytical and nuclear chemistry. It 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, particularly applications to nuclear analytical chemistry. Established originally in 1968 by the publishers of the Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry (JRNC), the George Hevesy Medal Award has been given during 1968-1986 to 19 distinguished individuals whose contributions have traced and defined the scope and depth of radioanalysis through prolific postwar years of the nuclear era.
