## Annual award

The Finnish Inverse Prize is the annual award of the Finnish Inverse Problems Society. The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding achievements in the field of inverse problems broadly defined, and to encourage future work in the field. The prize is most often awarded to a young researcher for an outstanding doctoral thesis in inverse problems.

## Selection process

The prize winner is selected by the Board of Governors of the Finnish Inverse Problems Society. The award is presented in the annual Inverse Days conference, and the current prize amount is 2000 euros. The prize has been awarded every year starting from 2000 (in 2000-2014 the prize was known as the Pertti Lindfors prize). In 2016, two specific prize categories were introduced: Early Career Prize and Dissertation Prize.
