Academy of Athens with the annual ‘Nikolaou Karolou’ award for 2020, and a prize of 3000 euros. The Academy of Athens is recognized as the most reputable scientific institution in Greece.

In 2020, the Academy of Athens honoured ten scholars from the third categorie, eight of whom also received an award.
Penna was one of the eight scholars who received an award, which was based on her publication of 'Similar Problems, Similar Solutions? Byzantine Chrysobulls and Crusader Charters on Legal Issues Regarding the Italian Maritime Republics' in D. Slootjes & M. Verhoeven (eds), Byzantium in Dialogue with the Mediterranean: History and Heritage [Series: The Medieval Mediterranean, Volume: 116], Brill, Leiden, pp. 162-181.
Due to corona measures, the official ceremony in the Academy of Athens will take place in 2021.
