Our chief executive Robert Parker says: “It is an honour to celebrate the innovation and expertise of our community through our prizes and awards.
“We know that chemistry can be a powerful force for good, and quality research and communication of that research are more important than ever before.
“Our charitable mission is to advance excellence in the chemical sciences, and we are proud to celebrate our inspiring and influential winners, who share that mission.”
Our winners are drawn from across the breadth of the chemical sciences and from around the world. We have categories for both early career researchers and more established researchers – and with over 80 prizes and awards in our main portfolio, there is something for everyone.
Among this year’s prizes and awards are four aimed specifically at the education sector, and these are covered in more depth in our magazine for chemistry educators, Education in Chemistry.
There are also eight prizes and awards aimed at those working in industry. The winners of these will be announced at our flagship event for the chemical-using industry, Chemistry Means Business, in Manchester on 13–14 June. Watch this space for more...
Online article collection
