Helmholtz Medal


There may be a number of "Helmholtz" medals, awarded by any of:

  • Royal Academy of Sciences of Berlin
  • Prussian Academy of Sciences
  • Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften (GDR)
  • German Acoustical Society (Rayleigh-Helmholtz Medal?)
  • Helmholtz Institute (for work in cognitive science)
This list will be a mish-mash until this is sorted out. All such awards are in honor of Hermann von Helmholtz.
