Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award is given every two years by the Joint Executive Committee of the International Bureau for Epilepsy and the International League Against Epilepsy to honor those truly exceptional persons with a record of achievement in work against epilepsy. It is the highest honour presented by IBE and ILAE, and exceeds even that of those who have been awarded the Ambassador for Epilepsy Award or the Award for Social Accomplishment.
If such a person is elected, then during an International Epilepsy Congress he/she will be presented with two silver candlesticks, upon which will be engraved the logos of IBE and ILAE, the name of the Award and the name of the recipient.
Nominations for the 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award must be received by 31 December 2016.
