The IUPAC-ThalesNano Prize, established in 2011, is to be awarded to an internationally recognized scientist whose activities or published accounts have made an outstanding contribution in the field of flow chemistry in academia or industry. The award will be presented for the first time in 2012 at a IUPAC-sponsored conference at which the award recipient will be asked to give a plenary lecture on the subject of his/her research. The prizewinner will receive USD 7500 and a contribution to travel expenses.
The prize was established by a generous gift from the Hungarian Technology company ThalesNano Inc. to acknowledge the key role that flow chemistry plays in the improvement of chemical processes.
Submissions should be received by nomination only, with just one person needing to serve in that capacity, although a total of five (5) individuals should be listed as referees overall. The package must be submitted electronically and should contain a complete résumé, a professional autobiography of not more than two pages, and a one-page summary of what the individual considers to be his/her activities, accomplishments, and/or publications that have had the most significant impact upon the field of flow chemistry.
For more information contact Michael Droescher, chair of the IUPAC Committee on Chemistry and Industry, at <[email protected]
Nomination materials must be submitted by 31 January 2012 to the IUPAC Secretariat <[email protected]>.
