Inspiration. Recognition. Prestige.
For over 150 years our prizes and awards have recognised the outstanding work happening in every corner of the scientific community.
Our 2020 prizes and awards are your chance to raise awareness of individuals and teams making a positive impact for the chemical sciences. If you’d like to nominate someone but need some help with the process or working out which award to nominate them for, then get in touch.
Our previous winners have come from a vast range of specialisms, backgrounds, countries and communities but all have demonstrated passion, excellence and dedication deserving of recognition and reward.
There are over 60 prizes and awards that you could nominate for, reflecting the broad scope of achievement in our community.
We have made more changes this year to support your nominations:
- It’s now possible to self-nominate for all of our team awards
- We have extended the eligibility guidelines for our Corday-Morgan Prizes to widen the window of recognition for mid-career researchers
- The Peter Day Award is open to researchers working in any area of materials chemistry, and no longer alternates between those specialising in the broad areas of soft matter and continuous lattice solids
- As part of the nomination process, nominators are asked to confirm that to the best of their knowledge, there is no confirmed or potential impediment to their nominee receiving an RSC prize or award related to their professional standing
Make your nomination by 5pm (UK time) 15 January 2020. Some awards require nominators to be Royal Society of Chemistry members.
