Nominations for IACS’ International Catalysis Award

Nom­i­na­tions for IACS’ Inter­na­tion­al Catal­y­sis Award are now being accept­ed until 15 Sep­tem­ber 2003. The award is spon­sored by the IACS and pre­sent­ed to the recip­i­ent at the ICC meet­ings, every 4 years. The pur­pose of the Award is to rec­og­nize and encour­age indi­vid­ual con­tri­bu­tions by a young sci­en­tist in the field of catal­y­sis, such as the dis­cov­ery or sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment of a cat­alyt­ic process, or an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to the under­stand­ing of cat­alyt­ic phe­nom­e­na. The Award con­sists of a cer­tifi­cate and a finan­cial reward (ten times the reg­is­tra­tion fee for the ICC meet­ing). The recip­i­ent must not have passed his/her 45th birth­day by May 1, 2003 and will be required to give a lec­ture on their research as part of the 13 ICC meet­ing.

Nom­i­na­tion doc­u­ments should be sent to the Pres­i­dent of the IACS
