Medalla Copley

Premio otorgado por la Real Sociedad de Londres como reconocimiento al trabajo científico

La Medalla Copley es un premio que otorga anualmente la Real Sociedad de Londres a una persona física como reconocimiento al trabajo científico por sus logros sobresalientes en las ciencias físicas o biológicas. Es el galardón más antiguo concedido por una institución académica, ya que la primera medalla se concedió en 1731.

HistoriaEditar

El premio se creó tras el legado póstumo realizado a la Real Sociedad de Londres en 1709, por Godfrey Copley, próspero terrateniente de Sprotbrough, cerca de Doncaster, miembro por elección de la Real Sociedad de Londres desde 1691. El monto ascendía a 100 £, y el interés sobre el mismo se utilizaría para la realización de experimentos durante una serie de años.

Las condiciones de la medalla han variado varias veces a lo largo del tiempo. En 1736 se acordó conceder una medalla por valor de 5 £, ya fuera para el descubrimiento científico más importante o para el mayor aporte experimental, norma que se siguió hasta 1831, cuando las condiciones se modificaron de modo que la medalla se concediera al autor de la investigación que el Consejo de la Real Sociedad de Londres decidiera por mayoría que fuera el mayor merecedor de dicho honor. Joseph William Copley realizó en 1881 una segunda donación por valor de 1.666 £, 13 s y 4 d, de la que se destinaría la mitad de los intereses que rindieran dicha cantidad a cubrir los costos del galardón.

En su formato actual el galardón se concede anualmente y consiste en una medalla de plata dorada y un premio en metálico de 5.000 £. Los premiados, que en años consecutivos se alternan entre las ciencias físicas y biológicas, son elegidos por el Consejo de la Real Sociedad de Londres, a propuesta de los respectivos Comité de Premios en Ciencias Físicas y Comité de Premios en Ciencias Biológicas. El premio está abierto a los ciudadanos de un país de la Mancomunidad de Naciones o de la República de Irlanda, o de personas que habitualmente residan y trabajen en un país de la Mancomunidad de Naciones o en la República de Irlanda durante el período mínimo de los tres años inmediatamente anteriores a la que fecha de su propuesta. No hay limitaciones para el período en él se hayan realizado los logros de investigación y se puede conceder más de una vez a la misma persona. Las nominaciones son válidas durante cinco años, y el candidato no puede ser renominado hasta un año después de que haya expirado su nominación.[1]

La Real Sociedad de Londres también instituyó en 1825 y 1965 la Medalla Real, de manera independiente a la Medalla Copley, que en sus tres modalidades galardona anualmente las contribuciones más importantes en las ciencias físicas (1825), en las ciencias biológicas (1825) y en las ciencias aplicadas (1965).[2]​ Fueron varios los galardonados que han recibido varias veces la medalla: John Theophilus Desaguliers (1734, 1736 y 1741), Stephen Gray (1731 y 1732), John Canton (1751 y 1764). Y en varias ocasiones el galardón fue compartido: por tres medallistas (en 1766) y por dos (en 1783, 1791, 1798, 1821, 1825, 1827, 1832, 1836, 1837, 1838, 1840 y 2010). Y en veintiuna ocasiones no se entregó.
