The European Solar Physics Division Board is delighted to present the 2023 ESPD Prize winners:

ESPD Patricia Edwin PhD Thesis Prize awarded to Dr. Yuto Bekki (PhD carried at University of Göttingen – Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Germany) for the outstanding collection of original results about modes of solar oscillation in the inertial frequency range and for the development of numerical models to classify and study the various families of inertial modes that permeate the solar convection zone.

ESPD Giancarlo Noci Early Career Researcher Prize awarded to Dr. Jack Jenkins (PDRA at KU Leuven, Belgium, at the time of the award) for important contributions to the understanding of the development, evolution and eruption of solar filaments/prominences using observation and numerical results and for the identification of instabilities in the process of prominence formation and evolution.

ESPD Kees Zwaan Inspirational Community Prize awarded to Martina Pavelková (Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Science, Czech Republic) for her tireless dedication and enthusiasm to knowledge dissemination, for serving as inspiration and role model for younger generation and for her role in the development and coordination of a cross-border network of amateur solar physicists.
