Nominations for 1999 Shah Family Innovation Prize due September 15th,

EERI is actively soliciting nominations for the 1999 Shah Family
Innovation Prize. Created with a substantial gift to the EERI Endowment
Fund by the Haresh Shah family of Stanford, California, this $10,000
prize is awarded to a younger professional or academic for creativity,
innovation and entrepreneurial spirit in the field of earthquake risk
mitigation and management. The prize recognizes and honors one or more
younger individuals (less than 35 years old) who has/have been involved
in the development of cutting-edge, innovative solutions to problems in
earthquake engineering and related disciplines. The selection of
recipients will emphasize creative and innovative thinkers who have
demonstrated at early stages in their careers the potential to make
major contributions to the field of earthquake risk mitigation and

The recipients of the 1998 Shah Family Innovation Prize were Bret
Lizundia of Rutherford and Chekene, a structural engineering firm in San
Francisco, California, and Nicos Makris of the University of California,
Berkeley, representing creativity and innovation in professional
practice and in academia. Bret Lizundia was acknowledged particularly
for his unique design solution to the seismic repair and strengthening
of Frank Lloyd Wright's Hanna House at Stanford University. Nicos Makris
was honored for his creativity and innovative research that resulted in
the design, analysis and development of an electrorheological (ER) fluid
damper, a controllable damper, for seismic protection of structures. 

If you would like to nominate a candidate for this prize, contact the
EERI office for a brochure that describes the process. Nominations are
