European Chemistry Gold Medal
Every two years, the exceptional achievements of one scientist working in the field of chemistry in Europe are rewarded. The winner will receive a gold medal and the opportunity to give the opening lecture at the next European Chemistry (EuChemS) Congress (ECC). Submissions for the European Chemistry Gold Medal 2022 are to be made through the online form until December 31, 2020. euchems.eu/awards/european-chemistry-gold-medal/
EuChemS Lecture Award
Each year, the major achievements of one junior scientist working in chemistry in a country with a EuChemS Member Organisation will be rewarded. The winner will receive a statuette and the opportunity to give a lecture at the next European Chemistry Congress (ECC) or at a conference of a EuChemS Professional Network (PN) Nominations have to be submitted via the webform until December 31, 2020: euchems.eu/awards/lecture-award/
EuChemS Award for Service
The EuChemS Award for Service acknowledges outstanding commitment with regard to fostering chemistry and molecular sciences in Europe and the goals of EuChemS. In addition to recognized service to EuChemS, this may include activities in governmental, non-governmental or funding organizations, publicity-related activities, etc. Nominations must demonstrate achievements for improved competitiveness, visibility, coherence or structure of chemistry in Europe. All EuChemS member organizations, Divisions/Working Parties and individuals are invited to submit nominations for the Award. Self-nominations are not accepted. Decisions on making the Award are taken by the EuChemS Executive Board, normally annually. Nominations have to be submitted via the webform until December 31, 2020: euchems.eu/awards/award-for-service/ EuChemS Historical Landmarks Award Chemistry is an integral part of the Cultural Heritage of Europe. However, while there are many touristic signs marking the very place where important intellectual developments or events happened, only a few chemical sites are identified and publicised. Most of the existing programmes are run by national chemical societies, and therefore often overlook the European, and even the international dimension, of the chemical sciences. For these reasons, EuChemS decided to set up a Historical Landmarks Programme. It will reinforce the sense of belonging of European chemists and remind them that as far as the history of chemistry goes, people and ideas alike have circulated, been shared and shaped through meetings and communication. Submissions for the EuChemS Historical Landmarks Award 2020 are to be made through the online form until December 31, 2020.
