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.

Who is eligible for a nomination?
Nominees for the EuChemS Lecture Award should be scientists who have made major contributions to any area of Chemistry and significantly advanced our understanding of a particular discipline. Nominees must be working in a country with a EuChemS member organisation at the time of the nomination. The Award is generally meant for scientists within 10 years of their PhD. Eligible career breaks that can be considered for the extension of the eligibility window are maternity or paternity leave after PhD award.

Awarding ceremony
The winner will be offered to give a plenary invited lecture at the next European EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC). During the Award ceremony the awardee will be presented with a commemorative statuette and a certificate. The awardee’s travel, accommodation and registration fee will be covered in accordance with EuChemS regulations i.e. equally shared between the ECC organiser and EuChemS Budget.
How to apply
Nominations for EuChemS Lecture Award are open via the online nomination system. Deadline is December 31, 2021

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.

Who is eligible for a nomination?
The nomination must demonstrate service to EuChemS and/or to European Chemistry over and above the basic voluntary contribution that would normally be expected. In addition to recognised service to EuChemS, this may include activities in governmental, non-governmental or funding organisations, publicity-related activities, etc. Nominations must demonstrate achievements for improved competitiveness, visibility, coherence, or structure of Chemistry in Europe. It is normal practice that members of the Executive Board, members of the Presiding Council, and of Professional Networks are not considered for the Award until after their term of office has ceased. Service in any of the aforementioned governance bodies of EuChemS is not itself sufficient to merit the Award.
Awarding ceremony
Place and date for awarding ceremony is agreed with the awardee.
How to apply
Nominations for EuChemS Award for Service are open via the online nomination system. Deadline is December 31, 2021 
EuChemS Historical Landmarks Award
The EuChemS Historical Landmarks program aims at designating sites in Europe where:
(i) events in chemistry (be it social, theoretical, experimental, pedagogic, industrial...) occurred that
(ii) have been important to the European or local (regional) chemical community and/or
(iii) have inspired a sense of European or local (regional) belonging.
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.
Who can submit a nomination?
The nomination must be made on behalf of one of the EuChemS member societies. If you consider to nominate a Swiss site for the award, please contact the SCS Head Office ().
More information about the event is available on EuChemS Website.
