As was done in the previous years, a specially appointed Panel of Judges evaluated 137 applications for consideration for the National Awards for Science & Technology Achievements (NASTA) – 2014. Applications were called under 13 categories. The evaluation method was composed of several screening steps, validation of screenings and a detailed assessment process which included presentations by applicants and field visits. The Panel of Judges selected five excellent works for National Awards and five for Certificates of Merit. The recipients of Certificates of Merits and the National Awards are published in this booklet. The Awards Ceremony was held on February 27th, 2015 at the Presidential Secretariat under the patronage of His Excellency the President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.
